Notification area background refresh with disabled compositing

Hi there,

it seems that the panel notification area does not fully refreshes its background. Several Network Manager icons appear at once after time:

How can I fix this?

Re: Notification area background refresh with disabled compositing

Strange... Have you tried to refresh the panels manually?

xfce4-panel -r

Re: Notification area background refresh with disabled compositing

That doesn't look like multiple network manager icons. It looks like another icon behind it. What does the Notification Area properties show in the Known Applications area? Can you identify the second icon?

Also which distro and what version of xfce4-panel are you running?

If possible, can you install and run the xfce4-statusnotifier-plugin in place of the notification (systray) plugin?

Re: Notification area background refresh with disabled compositing

Hi,

Thanks for the reply. Well

xfce4-panel -r

doesn't help at all. I'm currently on gentoo and the xfce-base/xfce4-panel-4.13.3::gentoo is installed. The statusnotifier plugin does nothing i.e. it doesn't appear visible on my panel after adding it. Changing config options for the plugin didn't help either. Did I miss something?

It's definately a background refresh issue. When I switch composite on the network manager icon shows clearly. As soon as I switch composite off the image gets distorted as if the background is not being refreshed. sad

Any other ideas?

Sorry, my bad. I was confusing panel plugins. I can see the same happening here with the systray (notification area) when disabling compositing. Probably best to create a bug report against xfce4-panel.
