[Bug 1460445] Re: hp-systray: No system tray detected on this system, unable to start, exiting


This appears to be a problem with older systems. A workaround is to
modify the startup desktop connection file (/etc/xdg/autostart/hplip-
systray.desktop) from

Exec=hp-systray -x


Exec=sh -c "sleep 15; exec hp-systray -x"

  hp-systray: No system tray detected on this system, unable to start,

Status in hplip package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  After a while of starting a kde session, a dialog pops up with the text "No system tray detected on this system, unable to start, exiting" and the hp systray icon disappears after clicking ok.
  Manually running hp-systray after that correctly shows a working hp systray icon.
