Now I understand, that the problem is more hard than I think before.
1) The code I sent is the solution... unless the application change
icon. In this case new icon is painted over and produces a mixture.
2) If I set window shape to 'AND' bitmap of icon (do I correctly
understand you?) then what to do with full transparent icons? E.g. some
applications (qip) flashes the icons by changing the icon with full
transparent icon and back.
a) Will window with NULL shape be created?
b) if a) is true, then when I click on null icon will I get any events?
For some time I wonder, why kde icons looks good even when they are
changing??? The answer is kde applications use KSystemTray directly
xmule to achieve the same goal, removes the icon from systray and adds
new one (as I understand it, I may wrong). Shall we use the same
Any other suggestion?
