GKrellM trayicons 1.03 Description:
gkrellm-trayicons is a plugin for gkrellm that displays a variable number of user-defined, automatically scaled icons. The icons may be used either for notification or as application launchers. The plugin serves a similar purpose to the "system tray" on the Windows taskbar. The notification functionality has been designed to facilitate easy integration into shell scripts and existing applications. The idea was born few years ago when I was striving to find a simple way to integrate my console-based IRC client (irssi) with my desktop. I needed some kind of a notification when someone had sent me a message or when a friend had joined the IRC network.
