I tried to change colors but nothing appears in the systray. But the color change in the wireless tab for example.
Ok I'll open an issue, thanks for your job !

With the GIT version did you change the color of the icons to something contrasting? Control for the color selection is in the Preferences tab, left hand pane. Without a color change they would still be same as in the release version.

If that does not work we should probably move this discussion to GitHub and open an issue on it (please feel free to do so). I have a virtualbox machine I use for seeing how the program works in other DE's, but I've not updated it in ages so may take me a while to work through that and then install KDE with Plasma to see what is going on.

Thanks for your answers. Indeed I use a dark tray background. I tried with a clear one and different icon theme but I can't see the connected icon when connected (I still seeing the disconnected icon).
So I tried to compile the code on github, but with this version I can't see any icon, whatever the connection status or the used icon theme.
I don't know if anyone got the same problem or if it's a problem with my system..

PS : Actually when I can see an icon I can only see the disconnected one. I can't see the connected or the connecting one.

If you can see an icon at all then it is not a QT library version issue.

Are you by chance using a dark tray background with the built in icons? The internal WiFi icons show up very poorly against dark backgrounds, to the point they are almost invisible. The disconnected one has a bit more contrast so you can see it somewhat easier. If it is the case you've got two options.

First is to try telling the program to use either a system icon theme, or a different theme (assuming you've got some installed). You can do this from the command line or from the preferences tab. I've found both the Oxygen theme icons and Adwaita icons have slightly better contrast (still not great though).

Second is a bit harder. Just recently I uploaded code to GitHub which will allow you to colorize the built in icons (not the external theme icons). I put that in specifically because the icons can be very difficult to see on occasion. The icons used internally (the Awoken set) is meant to be colorized and they look pretty good once you do. Unfortunately I've not created a release with that code yet. I've got one more fairly major internal cleanup I want to do before I do another release and AUR package. The code currently on GitHub does work if you want to download and compile yourself.

Version 5.5.1-1 is installed on my system, but how can I know what version was CMST compiled against ?
When connman is disconnected, I see the disconnected icon perfectly, but when connman is connected the icon is invisible.

What version of QT was CMST compiled against, and what version is installed on your system? Asking becasue showing systemtray icons in Plasma was supposed to be implemented in QT5.4. As I understand it Plasma has dropped the xembed protocol and it is taking a while to catch up.

No systray icon in plasma 5 when wifi is connected :/

I believe it was the upgrade to QT5.4 Before that the icon background rendered black even though it was supposed to be (and still is) transparent.

I had a report for QT 5.3 (GitHub issue #47, since closed) that the icons rendered properly with compositing turned on. Since the new QT5.4 release I've looked at XFCE (with and without the compositor), MATE, and a system with Tint2 and on all the icon seems to render properly. In my own i3bar I get the white background.

If you want to wander over to the GitHub page and open an issue I'll see what I can do, but if it is something internal to QT there is probably not much.

With the two latest updates the tray icon has been broken and now on transparent and/or black backgrounds it is all white. Very unsightly.

Version 2014.12.14-2 has the lines removed. Thank you for reporting it.
