Bug Description

Hello Mike,

A Debian user reported earlier that he was facing problems with Alltray when using the awesome window manager.
Here is his report [1]:
| Bugreport: I'm using awesome as window manager and when I launch alltray
| without parameter, it will never accept any window on which I click.
| Maybe it's fixed with compiz but it's not working with awesome (and
| previous version was not working as well).

Don't hesitate to tell me if you need more details.

This bug affects the old-maintenance version of Alltray.

I am the one who reported the problem to Ignace.
Running alltray -d I get this:
$ alltray -d
win->notray: 0

(alltray:17189): Gdk-WARNING **: Can't confine to grabbed window, not native

I end up clicking cancel because nothing happens when I click on other windows.

Does new alltray work with the awesome WM?

Changed in alltray:
status: New → Incomplete

AllTray Version 0.71b
awesome WM

I get the same output and nothing happens as hertzog mentioned.

However it seems to work when using:
$ alltray " <program_name>"
But after some seconds I lose mouse support.

My example:
$ alltray "evolution -c mail"
