#2368 closed Enhancement (fixed)

Change "system tray" to "notification area" in the gtk+ client.

Reported by: asjo Owned by: charles
Priority: Low Milestone: 1.80
Component: GTK+ Client Version: 1.74
Severity: Trivial Keywords:


Attached is a patch to change "system tray" to "notification area" in the gtk+ client.

The rationale is that it is called Notification Area in Gnome (the applet implementing it is called that, and the Gnome Human Interface Guide also uses that name: )

(A longer "rant" can be found here:

As an aside: apparantly the Windows equivalent isn't officially named system tray: - but all the same KDE and has adopted that very name: )

I guess that the gtk+ client primarily is used in a Gnome environment, so using the Gnome terminology maybe makes sense?

Sounds good to me but it breaks translations, so even though it's a minor change it'll have to wait for 1.80.
