How do I change the system tray gadget?


I can not seem to edit the system tray... setting/extensions/gadgets seems to be were I can turn on or off the system tray as well as add things like battery and clock and stuff... but I can not seem to edit the icons in the system tray,

I have installed some apps that apear on the tray, but I want to either remove them, so I can not see them, or put them in a pop out tray like when you hide icons in windows 10... is there a function like that?

Yeah, looking to how I can hide icons form the system tray on th bottom right, preferably with a popout like in windows, but hidden if only option.

this might depend on the program, but i know with vlc and strawberry there are options within the program's preferences to show the systray icon or not.

well, so far you just have my one opinion/shared experience so i personally would hold off on "no way to control" until/if one of the devs (or senior lq member type) pops a head in and says it can't be done. i can only surmise that there is plenty of magical mystery customization which can be done that is well beyond my present knowledge.

i am happy to help. i have received plenty of help here (Stefan was instrumental in my sticking with bodhi by sharing lxappearance and the qt config programs) as well as other linux forums. it feels like the right thing to do to try and give some back.

another quick unsolicited if you do happen to get one of your threads/questions answered, marking it as solved may be able to help someone else find that solution a little easier in the future.

Hello there

No, it is not possible to hide apps individually on the systray the bodhi way. You can only show/hide whole systray gadget container. As cordx noticed, some apps offer this feature itselves in their settings.

You can explore other systray indicators for Linux with xembed support. Maybe you will be lucky with the feature you want.

Stefan

This is not Bodhi/Moksha anymore, but tint2 has an option to filter out unwanted systray icons:

Nice feature.
