Hi there. Can someone tell me how do I really need hp-systray running? How can I disable it from running and docking it in KDE3's systray?

It runs automatically because it puts a file in /etc/xdg/autostart. If you don't want it to run automatically, just open the file /etc/xdg/autostart/hplip-systray.desktop and change the Exec line to
Code:
Exec=echo hp-systray --qt4

This unfortunately didn't help.

Code:
$ cat /etc/xdg/autostart/hplip-systray.desktop
[Desktop Entry]
Version=0.6
Type=Application
Name=HP System Tray Service
GenericName=Printer Status Applet
Comment=HP System Tray Service
Exec=echo hp-systray --qt4
Icon=/usr/share/hplip/data/images/128x128/hp_logo.png
Terminal=false
Categories=Application;Utility;
X-KDE-StartupNotify=false
StartupNotify=false


Any other TIP?

If the modification I provided does not work, it means either
1. kde has stored hp-systray in its session and it therefore starts it automatically
2. hp-systray is being started by some other script or some other file. You will have to search for that file in this case.

If you have done the modification I suggested, there is no way that /etc/xdg/* file is starting hp-systray now.

Well:
Code:
maf@firebird ~ $ grep -R hp-systray .hplip/
maf@firebird ~ $ grep -R hp-systray .kde3.5/Autostart/
maf@firebird ~ $ grep -R hp-systray .kde3.5/share/
maf@firebird ~ $


So it doesn't seem to be stored anywhere in here. However:
Code:
maf@firebird ~ $ grep -R hp-systray /usr/share/|grep -v binarny|nl
grep: /usr/share/mimelnk: Brak dostępu

So is it '/usr/share/hplip/base/device.py' that starts this tray crap?

I'm removing /etc/xdg/autostart after the emerging.

Is it possible to make a use-flag for this? This is windows-like behaviour and it's terrible...

net-print/hplip installs two autostart files:
- /etc/xdg/autostart/hplip-systray.desktop (used by kde4)
- /usr/kde/3.5/share/autostart/hplip-systray.desktop(used by kde3)

According to http://standards.freedesktop.org/autostart-spec/autostart-spec-latest.html these should be ignored when I create a file ~/.config/autostart/hplip-systray.desktop with content:
Code:
Desktop Entry]
Hidden=true

But by testing I found that
- kde3.5 does not obey ~/.config/autostart/ (but kde4 does IIRC)
- kde3.5 also does not use ~/.kde[3.5]/share/config/autostart/
- kde3.5 only obeys ~/.kde[3.5]/share/autostart/

To avoid duplicates I created ~/.config/autostart/hplip-systray.desktop with the above content and then did
Code:
cd ~/.kde3.5/share/
ln -s ~/.config/autostart

There's a guide on gentoo-wiki, similar to what prote says: http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Hide_the_HPLIP_system_tray_icon

Well if anyone is still annoyed by hp-systray, this helped:
Code:
USE="-kde -qt4 -X -libnotify" emerge hplip
