Bug Description

SystemTray.isSupported()
returns false with openjdk using gnome + compiz, while it returns true if I use metacity instead of compiz.

This problem was known is sun-java, and should be corrected in java 6 update 10 : http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=6438179
"Specifically, it returns true only if the window manager is named "Metacity" or "KWin".

As a result, impossible to make a java program which use systray for people using compiz :(

Happens. We will have to wait until Sun or Compiz team will fix it. This is not Ubuntu bug.

If compiz guyz wont know the bug report will be probably closed.

Please could the compiz packagers have a look at this code? Search for the files awt_wm.c XWM.java, XTrayIconPeer.java and XWindowPeer.java. All these have explicit code to handle Metacity. Please send a patch to handle Compiz as well.

Or should this handled on the compiz side?

Just make it check for compiz as well whenever it checks for metacity. I have no interest in Java so I'm not going to try to make the patch myself.

Now that you made a decision to remove closed-source java, at least fix that!
