Hi Grami,

I don't really know much about this, but you'll probably have to read up on
the "protocol" specifications for the various system tray implementations
in Linux (Ubuntu's Unity, GNOME, and KDE at the very least).

There's a freedesktop.org specification that GNOME and KDE were going to
share in order to be compatible at one point, maybe they did it?


Beyond that, my knowledge is useless.

You might have to inquire on the developer mailing-lists for the different
Linux desktops asking how to do it.

Hope that helps,
