SystemTray issue


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I use Enpass 5.5.6 on Arch linux with i3 (as the main window manager) and XFCE applets and I have the following issues:

When I activate the system tray and autostart options, the next time I start the computer the system tray icon is not show (I have to manually uncheck and check it again).


  • AntergOS (Arch)
  • i3 version 4.13
  • Enpass 5.5.6
exec --no-startup-id exec /opt/Enpass/bin/runenpass.sh startWithTray

Any idea why? Thanks in advance.

I also have kind of a similar problem on Arch with i3. I use the same command and when the PC starts both window and system tray icon pop up. What I would expect is for only the system tray icon to pop up, without the window opening. It's rather annoying and I haven't found a workaround yet.

Would be glad if there was some information on this problem.

Edit: I tinkered a little bit and found this simple workaround:

exec --no-startup-id i3-msg 'exec /opt/Enpass/bin/runenpass.sh'; sleep 0.5s; i3-msg '[class="Enpass"] kill'

It's not perfect but it works until this issue is solved. Also you might need to edit the sleep duration if it doesn't work for you.
