Tray icon under Mate Desktop on Linux has irrelevant appearance and doesn't handle mouse events properly


I found a great workaround:

dbus-launch someQtApp someAppOptions

It works completely OK under Mate. The icon displays the images properly and mouse clicks are handled as they should.

Thanks to .

This workaround works for Telegram Desktop and for caja-dropbox (caja-dropbox is the Dropbox for Mate). For Dropbox, its additional setting is required to not autostart it on system startup: uncheck that in Dropbox Preferences.
