[SOLVED] Wlan icon at Tint2

Hello all!   Sometimes the wlan icon at right corner of Tint2 tray fails to appear or is strangely doubled. Then wlan connection may or may not serve as usual. A reboot usually corrects the problem. QB, Dosbox, Bluetooth and clipboard manager icons work decently as well as mostly wlan connection with Firefox as browser. The issue is not crucial but if it can be fixed an advice would be much appreciated.

I have Acer 5750G with Atheros wlan interface. OS is BL alpha2 and it works beatifully day after day.

Re: [SOLVED] Wlan icon at Tint2

hello matti,
what software have you installed since installing bunsenlabs? what is QB?

can you elaborate on this:

can you click both icons, when you have 2? do they in fact belong to the same application?

Re: [SOLVED] Wlan icon at Tint2

When the icon is doubled, does this command fix it:

bl-tint2restart

If not, does this fix it:

killall -SIGUSR1 tint2

Re: [SOLVED] Wlan icon at Tint2

@ohnonot: Wlan service has been off only when no icon was present at the tray field. With two net icons the internet connection is ok. Information of the net status is displayed only by one of the waln icons. The other icon is so to say 'dumb', and a mouse click does nothing.
At a disconnection of the net both icons go away in unison.

@HoaS : today  there were two Bluetooth icons at the tint tray. bl-tint2restart fixed this nicely.

Thanks a lot for your answers. I regard my problem now as SOLVED. Be notified somehow?

Please edit the title of your first post in this thread and add "[SOLVED]" to the start.

The bug is a known problem and will hopefully be dealt with before the official release.

Until then, you could bind a key combination to the `bl-tint2restart` command in ~/.config/openbox/rc.xml

Re: [SOLVED] Wlan icon at Tint2

(There's also a "restart tint2" item on the menu, put there because of various oddities that had come up.)

i'd say this is a seperate problem andhas nothing to do with tint2.
