System tray dockapp similar to the GNOME notification area applet

Peksystray is a small system tray also called notification tray designed for all lightweight window managers that support docking. As more and more applications use a small icon in the system tray to provide some additional functionality and information, it becomes useful for everyone to have common access to them. While “heavy” window managers Gnome, KDE… come with a system tray embedded in the rest of the desktop, lighter window managers Window Maker, Fluxbox … do not have this feature. Peksystray is a very simple and light implementation of a system tray for any window manager supporting docking, conforming to the System Tray standard.

Peksystray provides a window where icons will automatically add up depending on the requests from the applications. Both the size of the window and the size of the icons can be selected by the user. If the window is full, it can automatically display another window in order to display more icons.

Peksystray has been named after PekWM.
