Using QSystemTrayIcon with PyQt

Hello,

I am pretty new to Python, and have never learned C++. I am trying to
implement the following thing into my python application:

http://doc.trolltech.com/4.3/qsystemtrayicon.html

Through PyQt. I have been using PyQt for awhile and I know how do use
it, but I could not get this specific thing to work. Can someone give
me some hints as to get it working in Python?

Thanks a ton,

Alex

Have you looked at PyQt's systray example?

Unsurprisingly in the PyQt source package.

By which I mean the current snapshot - I'd forgotten that it is a recent
addition.

Dear All, I am fairly new to Python. I have found it an easy language to learn and a very usefull one for many tasks. Currently I am working on a python project that involves a GUI and it was suggested that PyQt is the best way to design that GUI. However since PyQt is rather new, I have not found much documentation on it, or examples in it. The only useful tutorial/book I have found is at www.opendocspublishing.com/pyqt/ but it is...

I am kind of new to Python, and after trying and using wxPython, I found it kind of lacking in easy-to-read documentation, speed at loading, and GUI response-time. So I am looking for an another GUI toolkit that is cross-platform for Python, and am leaning toward PyQt (PyGTK is kind of dull looking in comparison). Unfortunately, although TrollTech says Qt is cross-platform, its license strategy has me a bit confused. So here is to...

OK, so I'm at the stage where I want to make a choice between wxPython and PyQt. Currently I'm using wxPython mainly due to the fact that it has GPL Linux and Windows versions.

Hi all, I'm about to write an application, and I'd like to use PyQt, but before choosing this toolkit I would like to clarify some particular licensing issues; if some user has already touched these, I would like to hear from his experiences. This app should be cross-platform, so, given qt licensing policies, I would buy a commercial PyQt license and a commercial Qt license. Could I license the application under the GPL for Gnu/Linux...
