Hi, I have trouble running Tomboy, the note taking gtk#/mono-app, on Xfce. It starts, creates room in the system tray for the icon; sometimes the icon shows up, sometimes it doesn't, but when it shows up it disappears after 5-10 seconds. When the icon doesn't show up or has disappeared, there's still room for it created in the system tray. However, right clicking on that space gives the normal panel right-click-menu, not Tomboy's right click menu.
Sometimes a window pops up, but when it does it becomes unresponsive also within a few seconds. When I run it from Terminal there are no error messages, this is the output:
[arvind@pussycat ~]$ tomboy

And that's it. No error messages. I've tried `ldd /usr/lib/tomboy.exe`, and that shows all the needed libraries are installed. I have Gnome services started at startup (ticked the box in the settings manager) but that doesn't help. I do have a small subset of gnome installed, but as far as I know I have everything that's needed.
Is anyone able to run tomboy on xfce? Or anyone has an idea of what goes wrong with my setup? I use Arch linux by the way.
Just found out it crashes when the panel is on autohide. When it isn't on autohide, tomboy works perfectly. But as soon as the panel hides, tomboy crashes. Would that be a tomboy problem or a panel problem? Or something else even?
Tnx. It doesn't really crash (in the sense that it segfaults) but the icon disappears from the system tray and the windows become unresponsive. Do you think this is a problem with Xfce's system tray or with Tomboy? I'd like to file a bug report but don't know where
Thank you, I've added my problem to bug 3176. Let's hope the dev's know how to fix it!
