I want to create a program that runs in the system tray (in the bottom right hand corner of the screen) on Raspbian that is using LXDE. The program needs to be similar in fashion to a battery monitor icon seen on all laptops, but this program will instead be showing the level of some super capacitors.
More specifically, the following is desirable:
- Program launches on startup, and a small icon is displayed in the system tray in the lower right hand corner of the screen. The icon cannot be just a static image since it will be displaying the level of the super capacitors.
- User can click the icon and a small window will appear with more information.
I'm looking for general information on going about solving this problem as well as some more detailed explanations if possible.
Can anyone point me in the right direction? I'm really struggling to find answers on Google.
