Unwanted tray icon in notification area
Last modified: 2007-12-02 23:36:39 UTC
The Seahorse agent puts a GtkStatusIcon in my notification area. I really don't want it and there's no way to hide it either.
There is a way to hide the cache icon and it's documented here:
I wonder if we should hide it by default.
Perhaps, there seems to be a general bad feeling towards things that sit in the notification bar and aren't currently notifying people of anything. I think Davyd Madeley's new applet API will remove the distinction between notification applets and applets, but in the meanwhile we can hide it.
Please hide it by default.
I concur. Please hide it unless it does something useful.
It was brought to my attention that the "clean cache" feature is only exposed through that notification area icon.
I think we should make it available in seahorse-preferences.
Done. Disabled by default.

A patch which adds the UI suggested. Well it would be a patch if glade wasn't so dumb and broken ...
