System tray got moved ..., how to get it back? (SOLVED)

After changing from polybar to tint2, I configured system tray to show up in tint2 (top center), today I noticed usual top center system tray has been changed to left lower bottom with the main tint2 in top center. Even after removing the system tray on the tint2conf, it shows up in the left lower corner as pictured.

How do I get the system tray to show again in the tint2 panel and not on the left bottom corner?

thanks,

You need to ‘comment out’ trayer in your autostart file –

in text editor open openbox autostart and look for a line roughly like this

sleep 1; trayer --edge bottom --align right --monitor 1 --transparent true --alpha 256 --widthtype request --SetDockType false --expand true &

And put a ‘#’ before the line, so it looks roughly like this

#sleep 1; trayer --edge bottom --align right --monitor 1 --transparent true --alpha 256 --widthtype request --SetDockType false --expand true &

Save and reboot.

Pretty scrots btw.
