Radiotray icon missing in KDE (solved)

Post by toomanyquestions » Wed Aug 26, 2015 11:15 pm

I just installed 17.2 KDE and it seems to work pretty well. Unfortunately, radiotray lacks the proper tray icon (it looks like blank document icon). I checked the .desktop file under /usr/share/applications and it lists "radiotray" as the correct icon. The homerun kicker menu has the correct icon too. In short, it seems that only the tray icon is problematic. How do I associate the proper tray icon with radiotray?

What release are you running - 17.x? What icon theme? Did you do anything unusual when you set the system up (e.g. delete the panel or tray and then reactivate them)?

I'm on 17.2 upgraded since 17.1 and before that previous versions
I normally just do an upgrade not reinstall.
At one time I had the same missing ICON on the tray - think it looked like "?" or blank square or similar icon.


Some other founds they solved similar issue by Changing config.xml file in ~/.local/share/radiotray
from <option name="gui_engine" value="appindicator"/> to <option name="gui_engine" value="systray"/>


perhaps you can check your config file as as follows..

Code: Select all

kate ~/.local/share/radiotray/config.xml 

Code: Select all

<config>
  <option name="volume_increment" value="0.05"/>
  <option name="volume_level" value="1.0"/>
  <option name="url_timeout" value="100"/>
  <option name="enable_application_indicator_support" value="false"/>
  <!-- valid options are 'appindicator', 'systray' and 'chooser' -->
  <option name="gui_engine" value="systray"/>
  <option name="active_plugins"><item>Notifications</item></option>
<option name="last_station" value="Space Station Soma"/></config>

Not sure if this will work in your case, but sometimes things like this can be fixed just by adding a new (default) panel.

Your suggestion worked like a charm - replace, save, reboot. Beautiful. Thanks!!
