I'm running googsystray 1.2.1 on archlinux. I don't use any desktop environment. My window manager is icewm. The googsystray keyboard shortcuts don't work for me. I think I have to manually bind them. What are the commands for various shortcut? I'm particularly interested in "send sms message" and "make a phone call".
The keyboard shortcuts only work if I have googsystray preference window open and in focus
Hrm, that would make them pretty useless… That sounds like the root window bindings aren't working - the shortcuts should work at all times. There might be problems if another app (or the window manager) binds to those particular combinations already. Now that I think about it, there might be problems if googsystray is started before the WM, although I'm not positive about that. I'll look into it.
I'm sure nothing is bind to those shortcut keys. I tried starting googsystray after WM but the keys still didn't work. Can I manually bind these keys in my window manager? For example, "googsystray -c" open preference window, are there similar commands for other windows?
Hrm, there's definitely something specifically funky going on with icewm and the global hotkeys.
It looks like the 'Win95Keys=1' (by default) option in preferences seems to be a problem. It may be related to icewm grabbing the root window too… (GrabRootWindow=1). At any rate, it looks like icewm is doing something weird to grab the keys (binding the super_l key in, say xfwm, doesn't cause a conflict with googsystrays cntrl-super-<key> combos). Turning that Win95Keys=1 option off seemed to make things work ok - I don't know if you use those keys or not.
It works…thank you so much…I was considering switching to another WM like openbox
