Bug Description

System: Slackware 12.1
Window manager: KDE 3.5
Application: Thunderbird 2.0
AllTray version: 0.70

Alltray works normally until the title bar "close window" is clicked. After that, neither clicking on the bar close button or or the tray show/hide option works. Thunderbird still works normally. Bar functionality is recovered after undocking from the tray.

Update: The same problem occurs with window minimization

Can you try AllTray 0.69 and see if this happens with that release? I'd like to know if this is somehow a regression or if this is a longer-standing bug.

My apologies for not getting to this sooner. Thank you for your bug report.

There is a (raw) test release of the new 0.7.xdev series of AllTray, version 0.7.2dev which is a rewrite that is slated to become 0.8.0. Can you download it from https://edge.launchpad.net/alltray/trunk/0.7.1dev (that's not a typo; I haven't figured out how to create arbitrary releases just yet, it looks like they have to be associated with a milestone, which doesn't make sense to me) and see if your situation is fixed with it?

Many of the features of the current AllTray need to be brought forward to the 0.7.x tree yet, but it should be functional enough for you to determine whether or not the new AllTray will handle this problem correctly.

To build 0.7.2dev on Slackware, you will need to have the build-dependencies for it, which include libwnck, gtk and glib, as well as a version of GCC that implements -std=gnu99 decently. It can be built using the standard (configure && make) process and you can run it directly from the build tree, e.g., "src/alltray thunderbird".

Thanks Michael. I'll check this and get back to you tomorrow.

Daniel,

This bug won't be fixed under KDE for at least a little bit yet. There is a bug that I am using for tracking issues with KDE now, that is bug 357469. Unfortunately, it may take a little while for me to figure out what's going on with that one since I am going to have to look to see what it is that KDE does differently. That said, I am going to mark this as a dup of that bug, and you'll be alerted as things are learned and when there is a fix available to test. Thanks for reporting this issue!
