Konch 1.00

A highly-configurable KDE system tray applet
Konch is a highly-configurable KDE system tray applet that acts as a proxy to ordinary scripts written in bash, Perl, etc. You can change the icon shown in the tray; colorize it; use a GIF or MNG animation; and make the icon blinking or invisible. You can also create menus, set the tooltip that is shown when the mouse hovers over the icon, and make Konch display a popup message.

You control Konch via command line parameters, DCOP, or your script's STDOUT.

When an event such as a click, double-click, or right-click occurs, Konch relays this to your script via command-line parameters (in Standard mode) or STDIN (in Hosted mode). Your script can respond by simply printing out appropriate lines (such as a menu listing), or executing a certain function or program.

Main features:

  • Use a custom icon
  • Use a custom movie (animated icon, MNG/GIF)
  • Set the tooltip
  • Colorize the icon
  • Create a menu
  • Create submenus
  • Blink the icon
  • Set a "poll" time
  • Pop-up a passive notification
  • Hide/show the icon
  • Control via DCOP or the script's STDOUT
