Re: Panel applets with Gtk2-Perl and Gnome2

There are several existing applets already, using Gtk2::TrayIcon (available from sourceforge and i think from CPAN, but not part of the bindings release set), e.g., YARSSR:

A tray icon isn't quite the same thing. I was thinking of something more like a sticky-note app or resource monitoring.

There are bindings for libpanelapplet in CVS, as Gnome2::PanelApplet, but last i recall there was some minor bug in them that kept them from working. Just now i went through to compile them and possibly put a tarball up on sourceforge, and found what i think is a pretty interesting bug, so we'll see how that pans out.

I'll be interested to see this. I could write my app using Gtk2::TrayIcon, but that limits where on the panel it can be placed.
