               if (Gtk2::TrayManager->check_running($screen)) {
                       print STDERR "A tray manager is already running, sorry!\n";

       The EggTrayManager library is used internally by GNOME to implement the server-side of the
       Notification Area (or system tray) protocol.  Gtk2::TrayManager allows you to create
       notification area applications using Gtk2-Perl.


               $running = Gtk2::TrayManager->check_running($screen);

       This method returns a boolean value indicating whether another program is already managing
       notifications for the given Gtk2::Gdk::Screen. If this method returns a false value, then
       you should give way to the application that is already running.

               $tray = Gtk2::TrayManager->new;

       This creates a tray manager object.


       This tells the tray to manage notifications for the Gtk2::Gdk::Screen referenced by


       This method tells the tray whether icons are to be arranged vertically or horizontally.
       $orientation may be either '"vertical"' or '"horizontal"'.

               $title = $tray->get_child_title($child);

       This method returns a string containing the title of the icon defined by $child.


           Emitted when a client plug (eg one created by Gtk2::TrayIcon) wants to connect. For
           callbacks connected to this signal, @_ will have the form

                   @_ = (
                           bless( {}, 'Gtk2::TrayManager' ),
                           bless( {}, 'Gtk2::Socket' )

           Emitted when a client plug has disconnected. For callbacks connected to this signal,
           @_ will have the form

                   @_ = (
                           bless( {}, 'Gtk2::TrayManager' ),
                           bless( {}, 'Gtk2::Socket' )

       "message_sent", "message_removed"
           The specification includes support for "balloon messages", but these
           are not currently implemented in EggTrayManager.

           As a rule, compliant applications should check to for an already running manager, and
           give way to it if it finds one. However, it is possible that your application might
           have its X selection forcibly removed; this signal is emitted if this should happen.
