Hi, the system-config-printer-applet (applet.py) should appear automatically in the system tray when documents are printed, and disappear when completed. However, under both Gnome Shell and Cinnamon, the applet will not appear at all, even when run manually from the command line.

Thanks.
This task depends upon

Are you using system-config-printer from [extra] or [testing] ?

From [extra]

Can you try the one in [testing] to see if it's fixed?

Hi there, thanks for looking into this.

Version 1.4.2-1 in [testing] is slightly better, but still buggy. When I login to a Cinnamon desktop with documents waiting in the print queue, the applet DOES appear in the tray as expected. However, when started with an empty print queue and then trying to print to a paused printer, the applet does NOT appear unless I logout and login again.

The applet works correctly in other desktops such as openbox. As soon as a document enters the print queue it appears, and disappears when the queue is empty again.

If you don't have a printer, you can test this bug with a paused cups-pdf virtual printer.

If it works correctly in other desktops, then it's propably a problem with cinnamon. You'll probably need to ask upstream (system-config-printer or cinnamon) for help.

It's a problem with both Cinnamon and Gnome. So either system-config-printer has to adapt to the new GTK3 stuff, or the new GTK3 notification tray stuff needs to have better backwards compatibility. Not sure who should adapt to who.

Contact system-config-printer and see what they'll tell you.
