I'm using a stand alone window manager without gnome or kde or any
other de. But I still would like to have a system tray or notification
area and so far used stalonetray for this. Stalonetray is written in C
and is a GTK application, works all right but sometimes it doesn't.
For instance if it is killed and restarted icons don't come back, etc,
etc, there are some quirks.
So I thought I would write a brand new stand alone system tray or
notification area in python. I guess I need to use gtk bindings or
some such but don't really know what my options are.
Where would I start something like this?
Any pointers would be greatly appreciated!
