Re: qtpanel - a project to create useful and beautiful panel in Qt

The icon not showing up could be due to a difference between QT4 used by this panel, and QT5 used by cmst.  Something in the QSystemtTrayIcon class changed between the two versions, although I don't know what.

Up until one or two releases ago the i3 bar would show system tray icons generated from QT4 applications just fine, but not QT5 generated icons. There was a bug report and some discussion about it over there. I know i3 does not use QT at all, but they determined the problem was in their implementation of the system tray specification and not at the QT end, Since QT4 icons did work it appears that maybe a vague similarity between the problems so thought I'd mention it. 

CMST is my baby and that system tray icon has been more trouble than it is worth.

Re: qtpanel - a project to create useful and beautiful panel in Qt

I have no problems with cmst and I really want to use it. If tray icon is not going to work then I could simply access it from a keybind or menu item. Thanks
