Network_tray 2.1

I have improved the icon. Instead of the traditional icon with two computer screens, now there is one screen and a world, with an umbilical cord between them. Now, when one of them flashes green, it is obvious which way the data is flowing. Besides, an image of the remote end as a world is more meaningful than a PC screen.

The excutable is still only 11KB. The PET package is only 4.1KB!

nice
I like the new look, and it looks better in the tray without the background color problem. Thanks!

Simple hack
Hi Barry

Thanks for the source and my idea is now implemented.

I made a simple hack to 2 of the .xpm files so that only the countries light up, not the whole world. It was on the advice of my 12 year old son who thought the plain icon looked cool but the whole world lighting up didn't.


Hacked source..

works nice but after a suspend/resume cycle in my laptop (that shuts down wifi) stays in the networkdead icon though network works fine.
My C knowledge is below primitive but is there any time-loop or re-check of find_active int?

tray icon
I also think it would look nicer if just the country would light up in green.
Also helpful would something like an indication, that there is no network access at all. I know it lights up, when it sends/receives packages, but something like a warning sign would be nice to make it more obvious.

no network connection shown
I just changed from wireless connection to cable connection which is a different device (wireless isn't working where I am at right now) and the network tray icon shows no activity and the tooltip says "No active network interfaces", although when I click on it for the information it does show, that eth0 has an IP and other data available. Blinky is working fine.

Network_tray 2.1
Hi Barry I have your new network tray icon and blinky running on 2.14X, your network tray is working fine, but its not as sensitive as blinky is, if you have say Gmail open and it automatically refreshes every few seconds, Blinky picks it up with a short fast blink, but the Network_tray update doesn't. But if I search it works fine, just isn't as sensitive.

network applet bug
Hi Barry

I can confirm Mavrothal's bug.

I unplugged my USB adapter in an unrelated experiment. I reconnected to the wireless network just fine with SNS but the applet still showed the cross. I had to restart X for it to recover.

Cheers

Network_tray 2.2
Have fixed one bug, perhaps not the one described above though. Now at version 2.2. Have uploaded the source and PET.

Fails in 112
I installed Quirky Retro 1.2rc (qret112.iso). It all looks good except the new blinky, which doesn't blink and doesn't seem to know there's an ethernet connection - mouseover shows 'No active network interface'.

Fails in 112 only at startup
The blinky didn't work in Retro 1.2rc, but after I re-booted it did. It's working now - mouseover reports I/F working and gives statistics.
