Full Version: Enabling And Disabling Keyhelper From A Tray Icon

Hello:

I'm running XQT, firefox, debian. Find myself typing a lot. Use QPOBox for this, have found the best solution to be to run Firefox-gtk from XQt directly...

For QPObox to work you need KeyHelper. Otherwise in debian it needs to be off, so find myself switching it on and off quite substantially.

Is there a way to have an icon in the task tray, like the connection icon, or like the flag in the CyrKbd icon from Cacko, that you would just tap on, and it would switch the keyhelper app on and off.

For instance I'm thinking, it'd be like a traffic light. It'd be green, you'd tap - it'd switch red and keyhelper would be off. You'd tap later again, it'd switch green and KeyHelper would be on.

Is this possible? How can I do this?

Thank you.

The latest version of keyhelper (actualy not sure when it started, but the latest version has it wink.gif) allows you to set what apps keyhelper doesn't work with.

What you'r suggessting shouldn't be hard to do as keyhelper has a control program to load,restart, stop etc, but I don't know of any existing taskbar applet that does this - you'd better get coding wink.gif

Is it the one with Cacko already, or did you install over it?

I installed over the Cacko version - cause cyrillica uses an older version that is missing a few features I've been recently using

It's even easier than that: it has a qcop interface (look at the control script).
