AllTray: Copyright 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 Jochen Baier, email@jochen-baier.de
	 Copyright © 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 Michael B. Trausch <mike@trausch.us>

  With AllTray you can dock any application with no native tray icon
  (like Evolution, Thunderbird, Terminals) into the system tray.
  A high-light feature is that a click on the "close" button
  will minimize back to system tray. It works well with Gnome,
  KDE, XFCE 4*, Fluxbox* and WindowMaker*.

  *no drag 'n drop support. Enable with "-nm" option.

  Please note that this line of development of AllTray is maintained,
  but it will not undergo major feature improvements nor massive
  change.  Those who wish to contribute to AllTray's future
  development (currently, the unstable releases in the 0.7.x series)
  are strongly encouraged to look to the trunk/mainline development
  tree.  (Note also that a low-level X11 expert is needed there!)

**Install:

  (./autogen.sh)
  ./configure
  make

  and as root:

  make install


**Run:

  just start alltray with:

    alltray program_name

  This will dock the program into the system tray. A single click
  with the left mouse button on the icon will show the program.
  A click with the right mouse button will show a popdown menu.

  For the "Click-Mode" start alltray with:

    alltray

  and click on the target window.



  A click on the "close" button ("X") in the window title will not exit the
  application. The application will be minimized.

  To quit the application use the popdown menu or the "FILE->QUIT" menu
  from the application.

  The "Undock" menu item will undock the window. Yeahh really ;)

  If you use the "--borderless" option, you can move the window with
  "Alt-left_mouse_button".


  Note: * Under KDE the "large_icon" option has no effect.
        * "--configure" option will only work under KDE. You need to configure
              AllTray after each theme change.
        * If you do not use KDE or Gnome and you want Drag n Drop: use the "--nm" option.
        * If you do not have Gconf/Gnome installed. Use the "--disable-gconf" configure option.


**All options:

  alltray -h:
