Bug Description

After upgrading to Oneiric, qjackctl no longer shows a menu when right-clicking on its tray icon. This happens on both a 64-bit and a 32-bit system that I have tried. To reproduce, you must enable the qjackctl option "Enable system tray icon" in Setup -> Misc. In earlier releases, right-clicking qjackctl's tray icon would cause a context menu to appear.

I have the same problem in Ubuntu 11.10. If I uninstall sni-qt and whitelist Qjackctl, it shows correctly in the system tray. So I guess the problem is with sni-qt when converting the tray icon into an appindicator.

I am reassigning this to the package sni-qt, as this seems to be the culprit.

affects: qjackctl (Ubuntu) → sni-qt (Ubuntu)

This bug still exists in Precise beta 2. I hope they fix it soon, as QJackCtl is one of the most important and used programs in the world of audio.

This bug still exists in final release of Precise. I too hope it will be fixed soon. If I remember it well, the same issue was solved in 11.10, apparently it came back. Perhaps finding the previous solution, will fix this problem again.

The solution is to remove the package "sni-qt". It probably got reinstalled when you upgraded to Precise.

Removing sni-qt is a workaround, but not a proper solution. sni-qt converts all qt tray icons in indicator-applets, giving consistency to the desktop. If I remove sni-qt, all other qt applications will dissapear from the system tray unless the are whitelisted.

It would be better if sni-qt could be disabled for specific software, like a list of programs that shouldn't use sni-qt.

I agree 100% with jsevi83. Having an application blacklist for apps that misbehave with sni-qt would be wonderful (here is where I wish I knew how to program). Thankfully, using Kubuntu, my system tray still functions as normal after removing sni-qt. Unfortunately, the same is not true for Ubuntu users.

Bug is still present in 14.04.02 It would be very usefull for it to be fixed, since qjackctl features such as reset depend on right click context menu.
