This plugin provides a StatusNotifierItem tray icon, for use in
KDE Plasma 5, Unity, Elementary and other environments.
It provides all the same functionality as the original tray icon
but not in exactly the same way:
- The 'smart' click behaviour that either shows the buddy list or
unread messages is now activated by a middle-click – because
left click on an libappindicator always opens the menu.
- As the SNI-icon is a separate process from pidgin itself, there
are sometimes conflicts with Focus Stealing Prevention when you
use the indicator to go to unread messages. You may need to
disable FSP for Pidgin to get around this.
- Due to how libappindicator work, the middle-click action must
also be a menu item, so it's the new Show/Hide item at the top
of the menu.
- Due to libappindicator limitations, some of the special icons
can't be shown next to menu items any more.
