Claws-mail 3.7.8 trayicon problem in Slack 13.0


Hello.

I've got a problem with the Claws-mail client. Couple of days ago I have updated the client to its newest version 3.7.8. Because I couldn't find a ready-made package for Slackware 13.0 I've downloaded the source, unpacked to a folder and using src2slack created a package.
Package has been created using default settings. And when done upgraded as it should be with upgradepkg.

And it was very nice until I've noticed that Claws didn't load into the tray. Went into plugin loading screen and saw that the trayicon plugin isn't loaded. Hey, this one is easy I thought and loaded the plugin.

And then it happened. The plugin didn't load but instead it spit out this message: "The following error occurred while loading Trayicon.so : /usr/lib/claws-mail/plugins/trayicon.so: undefined symbol: gtk_status_icon_set_title".

I've searched the web for a solution to this problem but could't find anything that would get me closer to solving this problem. I've found what this symbol should do(or so I think) but it doesn't get me anywhere.

Has anybody encountered the same problem or maybe knows how to solve it? I would really like to drop claws into the tray.

Thanks for any ideas getting me closer to getting it solved.

May be caused by a gtk library version change. Is there any output from find /usr/include/gtk-2.0 -name '*.h' -exec grep gtk_status_icon_set_title {} \;

Hi.

There is no output to this
Quote:
find /usr/include/gtk-2.0 -name '*.h' -exec grep gtk_status_icon_set_title {} \;
.
But having checked dependencies, and having gtk+2-2.14.7 does meet the requirements.
And if not, does that mean that I have to upgrade gtk+2 and all its dependencies to make this work? Or is there an easier solution?

Thanks.

not sure...but this page leads me to believe that you need
at least gtk+2 2.18 (which is included in slackware 13.1)
for gtk_status_icon_set_title.
