Description deim 2020-09-23 19:15:48 UTC
Just made upgrade of system with lxqt as desktop.
Seems works OK except tray - when hovering over icons (e.g. battery status, nm-applet, ...) panel hides like if I move cursor up. No caption is displayed.
When I'm quick enough, I'm able to make right button click to get context menu of tray icon before tray hide.
I have hiding panel set in settings since first install.

I believe this happens due to a particular bug fix [1], and in part due to the 'tray' plug-in being "deprecated".

Please try and see if your applications works with 'statusnotifier' instead (a lot of GTK+-2 applications will not).

A hacky workaround (that I use myself) is to revert said fix, but I'm not comfortable including it in the official ebuild.

The corresponding upstream bug has been closed:
"The tray plugin is obsolete. 
 Add Status Notifier to the panel."

lxqt-base/lxqt-panel-0.15.1 is not part of MPT any more.

Do these problems persist with lxqt-base/lxqt-panel-0.17.1-r1:0 ?
Using the recommended alternative, upstream bug suggests "no".

LXQt stable version 1.0 has been published today ...

Suggest to close this bug as OBSOLETE.

This should still be an issue when using the (obsolete) tray plugin, or/and when using applications that don't work with statusnotifier, yeah, but I suppose we can indeed close this up here.
