Network Icon in Notification Area Panel Plugin multiplied

Every time I restart my computer I get a new network icon on my Notification Area Plug-in from the main Panel...I have attached also a print screen...
Any ideas?

I am running XFCE 4.14 on siduction. It might be a bug but I will need a bit of instructions where to look to give further details...

here also a pic: I have 5 times restarted my PC => I have 5 Network icons in Panel...

Re: Network Icon in Notification Area Panel Plugin multiplied

Check Settings>>Session and Startup>>Application Autostart. Is there multiple network entries listed?

Re: Network Icon in Notification Area Panel Plugin multiplied

I only see one there so something is spawning multiple instances. Try:

ps aux | grep Network

Re: Network Icon in Notification Area Panel Plugin multiplied

I believe the process name is nm-applet. Does that have multiple running instances?

Also, which plugin is that showing up on (Notification Area, Indicator plugin, Status Notifier plugin)?

Try unchecking nm-tray in autostart applications. Network Manager should start the tray applet on it own. I don't have in my autostart.

Yup, just uncheck it and restart to test.

Re: Network Icon in Notification Area Panel Plugin multiplied

I have deleted all instances from the current session and restarted. In tray there is only one icon, but in the current session there is something fishy....

I will restart once more. Hold my beer, I am going under...

-------------------------
Edit: after restart there is only one icon in tray. Problem seem to be solved.

Thanks for the support!

Re: Network Icon in Notification Area Panel Plugin multiplied

Great! The only thing I may add is to make sure you don't have save session checked when you log out.

Re: Network Icon in Notification Area Panel Plugin multiplied

If it is running multiple instances when you logged out then when you log in they will all be restarted. A fresh session would prevent that.

Did it work properly after restarting?

Re: Network Icon in Notification Area Panel Plugin multiplied

yes, it worked properly after restarting.
Do you mean that I should only now (one time) uncheck the save session in order to start clean? and than to check it back?

I like this feature when the session is saved and restored... especially on siduction where here and there restarts are required smile

If everything is working fine leave it alone.
