KDETrayProxy
Utilities
Description:

KDE tray proxy is an auto-loaded KDED module that allows docking of KDE systray icons even without a window manager supporting the KDE tray protocol. It keeps systray icons working even when running KDE with other window managers.
Additionally, it allows docking of KDE systray icons in the GNOME panel.

Fixed a problem with applications that show/hide the systray icon (will need KDE3.2.2 to work properly with Kicker).

In what way is this better than the "kdetrayproxy" command provided in openbox?

I'm very glad to finally have KDE systray icons where they belong instead of floating around on your screen.

But since I have installed this, I often have a lot of empty space at the beginning of the notification area (thus before other notification icons). I have the impression that if I fire up a KDE application with systray icon, and close it again, the space in the notification area is not given back. So if you start and close such an application several times in one session, more and more space is lost in the notification area... This is with Gnome 2.6.1. I have never seen such a problem before I used kdetrayproxy.

Now we just need something that works just the opposite to this, i.e. we need to be able to dock gnome system tray applets in KDE's system tray.

Hmmm, doesn't work this already?

When I run gaim or gnomemeeting there are systray-symbols in my KDE-tray...

That's because they have explicit KDE systray support.

I thought this was a fd.o thing actually. If not it should be.

Try this:
Start any program you want to have in the dock with 'ksystraycmd anyprog'

Actually it's not that simple. Docking doesn't work correctly with applications that pop up multiple windows (xmms), or applications that pop up one window and then another (like splash screens).

Still that is pretty cool.

What I was looking to do was have the gpilot systray icon in the kde systray. I don't have access to the machine that has gpilot on it right now, but I'll give it a go.

I tried to put firebird in the systray, but despite passing hidden to it, the firebird window still came up.
