MinimWatch - no tray icon(s) or desktop launcher

RE: MinimWatch - no tray icon(s) or desktop launcher
To fix the "unable to create tray icon" error message, you need to install TopIcons Plus.

How exactly are you trying to run mscript?

OK, I'll have another go at TopIcons.

Code:
nick@nick-build-1:~$ cd Programmes
nick@nick-build-1:~/Programmes$ minimwatch/bin/mscript
MScript: configuration directory not found
nick@nick-build-1:~/Programmes$ minimwatch/bin/mscript --help
MScript: configuration directory not found
nick@nick-build-1:~/Programmes$

I really do appreciate your continued help with this.

RE: MinimWatch - no tray icon(s) or desktop launcher
This is a bug in mscript.jar and it will be fixed in the next release of MinimWatch. Unfortunately, it isn't possible to fix it in an update.

As an interim solution, you can download a new version of mscript.jar containing the fix from this link, then copy this jar over the current version of mscript.jar in minimwatch/lib.

Thanks for helping me find and fix this problem.

Thanks, mscript working now - brilliant!

Still trying to get TopIcons installed. I think my Gnome-shell isn't running properly. I've posted on the Ubuntu forums and hoping someone will come to my rescue soon. Thanks again for all your assistance on this.

RE: MinimWatch - no tray icon(s) or desktop launcher
Finally got there: MinimWatch icons again appearing properly in the top tray of my desktop of choice (Gnome Flashback (Metacity)

For the benefit of others, what I did was:

1. Log out and log back in choosing GNOME (from the little cog settings menu)
2. Install TopIcons Plus (https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/1031/topicons/)
3. Log back into Flashback, Alt+right-click on top panel, choose "Add to panel", choose "Notification area"
4. Restart MinimWatch and - hey presto! - there they are!

Thanks again, Simon, for your help. I don't know if within the developer community there are awards etc, but if there are I'd certainly want to nominate you as an exemplar for product support. And I suspect the software is exemplary too in terms of standards and efficiency, though I'm not qualified to judge on that.
