I tried winswitch on a wheezy install, I had to :

Hum. In fact, applet was running, but nothing working after that.
I had to copy winswitch_indicator to winswitch_applet, and add winswitch_applet to ALL_BUILTIN...

  • the tray system that you use is up to you, either appindicator or the regular StatusIcon based system tray. This really depends on your desktop environment. I am afraid that we can't add this as a dependency to the package, not even a "recommends" one because this API does not degrade well (last time I tried 'appindicator' would fails silently)

  • Can you expand on what you did with tray_icon_name? Which files did you change and why? (ideally a patch) The change you suggest may well break other things as this appindicator API is a bit of a nightmare to deal with (older versions cannot load with a full path, etc)

FYI: "winswitch_applet.png" should exist in /usr/share/icons/hicolor/*/apps/ because this is the only place where some versions of appindicator can load it from..

Edit: please specify your setup/desktop environment so I can try to reproduce.

Based on what you said, there is an untested fix in r4990, and beta packages with the fix included here:

Let me know if that solves your problem.
