How to move systray to bottom panel?

Postby hgraca on Mon Dec 03, 2012 1:17 pm

Hi,

Im using mint 14.1 cinnamon, and I've set up top and bottom panels, with the menu on the bottom left side and date/time, network, sound etc in the bottom right side.

However, when I try to drag and drop the systray applet, where the mint update and the dropbox icons are, they just open their window and I cant drag them.

Can some one explain to me how I can get the systray applet in the bottom panel?

Tkx in advance.

Well I don't know for sure but I would forget drag and drop, just delete systray on the top panel and add it to the bottom one. I only have one panel myself so I can't be certain that will work, must be worth a try though.

Tkx for ur reply.


it didnt work, adding an applet its a generic thing, I cant add it to a specific panel. I just add it, and then move it around wherever I want. Well, with this one I cant move it...

open dconf-editor, if u dont have it i think u need to install dconf-tools
then run dconf-editor (type it in terminal)
go to org>cinnamon in the left pane, go to the right pane and scroll down to 'enabled applets' then look for the systray entry which in my case is 'panel2:right:0:systray@cinnamon.org',
where panel2 means bottom panel (thats in my case, maybe the bottom one will be panel1 in your case) and just change it accordingly, if u want it on the left just replace right with left etc

Like I say I only have one panel so your answer is a little difficult to understand, but my next suggestion would be this. Delete your top panel, set up the bottom panel as you want it (with the systray etc.) then create a new top panel with whatever you want on there.

I think viking777 is right - just go to Cinnamon Setttings, choose the bottom panel layout, set it up with all of the applets you want, then choose the two-panel layout, drag and drop the applets onto it. That way you won't have to move the system tray. :)
