Black square icon in system-tray-applet

Postby Laoyumi » Wed Sep 03, 2014 10:03 am

In Linux Mint 17 my system-tray now displays besides the program icons a black square. Left or Right Click on it causes no reaction. What is this square icon and how can I get rid of it

I have the same issue with Keepass2 application icon in the applet. Although I have turned it off, it still shows me the issue.

Big black square.

I have this issue but then it went away.
Seems to be random, and could just be residue of updates, video changes, menubar customizations, etc.
Should go away on its own.

I have this same issue. Today I figure out the black square is coming from Keepass, and that I might be able to get rid of it with an extension.

Opening KeePass2 and going into its Menu - Tools > Options - Interface tab and changing it to:

{ } Close button [X] minimizes main window instead of terminating the application
{ } Minimize to tray instead of taskbar
{X} Show tray icon only if main window has been sent to tray

Then shutting down KeePass2 and restarting it got rid of my black square.
