The tray icon plugin does not seem to work at all on standard installations of Ubuntu 14.04 and has already been reported (https://bugs.launchpad.net/zim/+bug/1299917). There is a duplicate bug report (https://bugs.launchpad.net/zim/+bug/1314572) that describes a procedure to allow plugin behaviour as described under issue #3, according to my experience. Probably this is what "Notification Area Old" does. On my system I could manage issue #1 through the plugin configuration, where you can chose whether to use the classic or the themed icon.

Until issue #3 is fixed, I use the following workaround: deactivate the tray icon plugin and start the programme with the option '--plugin trayicon'. This still brings up one tray icon which works as before, while opening new notebooks does not add further icons. Probably this is also an option on elementary OS.


Many cheers to Zim and its developers.

Running elementary OS' "Luna" version, which is Ubuntu 12.04 with a gnome-based we called "Gala".

This uses the "new-style" indicator icons hosted in a "wingpanel" along the top. I also am running a Cairo-dock desklet called "Notification Area Old" because recent Dropbox versions only show up there ("classic" Gnome systray) rather than the new style.

I used to have a nice indicator icon in the right spot, but I just updated via your PPA (deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/jaap.karssenberg/zim/ubuntu precise main) and at first launch an icon showed up in BOTH tray applets. At second launch now it only shows in the old-style cairo-dock one.

If I quit Zim, disable the old handler and relaunch Zim, then the icon shows in the right place.

So issue #1 - it seems that the previous version of Zim on Linux gave priority to a new-style indicator handler, whereas the new version prioritizes for the "classic Gnome" old style.

Issue #2 - the new-style handling allows for theming the icon (eOS uses a dark-mono panel), when I replaced /usr/share/icons/hicolor/22x22/apps/zim.png with the nice mono icon I converted from ubuntu-mono-dark, it shows up perfectly in wingpanel, but the old-style systray icon is still the default lary color one - is that somehow hard-coded like Skype's? Replacing the scaleable SVG one didn't help either.

Issue #3 - the old-style icon handling code duplicates the icon for EVERY notebook opened, and leaves ALL of them there even after a given notebook is closed. You have to right-click/quit each one explicitly to reclaim yor panel real-estate.

I realize mine is a heck of an edge case, and perhaps of the three, only #3 is serious, if indeed it is reproducible in other wm/DE's. But if you do re-visit this area of the code, #1 is most important AFAIC, I'd think the previous behavior makes more sense.

If you think these are indeed bugs, let me know if you want me to post them to the tracker, and as one report or separately.

And thanks again for a fantastic app, and your ongoing responsiveness in keeping it updated.
