[SOLVED] HPLIP - No System Tray
« on: August 03, 2012, 05:32:46 pm »
I just installed Ubuntu 12.04 and after sorting out some other problems, I now have this problem;
No system tray for HPLIP.
running Gnome, rebooted quite a few times, so this problem is new.

Gnome shell, or Gnome classic ?

Can you reboot and check you're still getting this error.

What happens if you NOW run:
Code: [Select]
hp-systray

Does it start ? .. if so, you need to edit the command for the hp-systray item in startup applications from:-

hp-systray

to

sh -c "sleep 15; exec hp-systray"

It seems like hp-systray is attempting to start before the system tray is loaded .. changing that command will introduce a 15 second delay in starting hp-systray, giving the system tray time to come up first.

If you're not sure how to change the hp-systray startup applications command line .. ask.

Did you change the command in the hp-systray startup application entry (as described above) .. or not ?

if so, did it work upon a reboot ?

in other words .. is this now solved ?
