Yes, the counters issue is the same one for the past two years. Don't know if I put this in the CMST bug tracker or not, but the developers basically (but kindly) told me that to disable that I could submit a patch. Pretty clear that it is super low on their list of things to do. I've looked at it several times and I have an inkling of what needs to be deleted. Kind of low on my list as well as I've discovered they are one of those things that seem kind of neat on the outside, but really don't serve much purpose. Probably why the feature has been flagged experimental on the ConnMan end for so long.

I just compiled & ran this all OK. However, I had to "Disable Counters" in the preferences, as it was filling up my systemd journal logs. I think that it's the same upstream issue #7 that you discussed on GitHub a couple of years ago, with the debug settings left in on Counters as they're (still) marked as experimental in Connman. Anyway, I just thought that I'd flag it up for anyone else installing this, as it's just a case of ticking a box in the preferences & job done.

I just downloaded from the AUR, built, and it worked just fine plus it ran when finished. Was wondering if perhaps it was the recent upgrade to QT 5.8, but does not look that way.

The error relates to harfbuzz and the FT_Get_Var_Blend_Coordinates is a freetype error. My guess is this is related to the recent spate of problems with harfbuzz. I am aware there are problems, but I have not been following closely. Think you may need to look there for a solution.

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 !

ajbibb commented on 2015-10-29 12:30

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.

ajbibb commented on 2015-10-28 12:28

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.
