AllTray - Dock any program into the system tray.


alltray [program] [options]


With AllTray you can dock any application with no native tray icon (like Evolution, Thun‐ derbird, Terminals) into the system tray. A high-light feature is that a click on the "close" button will minimize back to system tray. It works well with Gnome, KDE, XFCE 4*, Fluxbox* and WindowMaker*. Xmms is supported in particular. Click-Mode: Only run alltray and click on the window you would like to dock. (Abort with <c>)


These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below. -h --help Show summary of options. -v --version Show version of program. -d --debug Show debug messages. -s --show Do not hide window after start. -i --icon Use a PNG image as an icon. -l --large_icons allow large icons (> 24x24). -st --sticky visible on all workspaces. -stask --skip-taskbar not visible in taskbar. -x --borderless remove border, title, frame (if not supported native). -m --menu Add entry "menu text:command" to popdown menu. -t --title Show title change for <sec> seconds.
