Re: GtkStatusIcon and Unity

Well, multiple Linux distros simply don't have tray icons anymore, so no tray icon class can possibly work cross-platform.

It depends on what the design of your application is. I'd recommend that you sway away from tray icons entirely in your application. For some Linux distros, GtkStatusIcon might be acceptable. For others, you might have to write an app indicator or design something better.

consider GtkStatusIcon deprecated.

Is there an alternative? I'm looking for something that will work cross-platform (multiple linux distros, windows, osx).

Is the simplest and most robust solution writing special code for each target platform's tray icon?
