I am running Minimal Ubuntu + Openbox. To bring up the network manager UI, I created the following script as suggested at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/NetworkManager#Openbox.
#!/bin/sh nm-applet > /dev/null 2>/dev/null & stalonetray > /dev/null 2>/dev/null killall nm-applet
The idea is to release nm-applet memory after done with it.
When I run this script, stalonetray comes up as expected. However, there is no option to close the tray.
Is there something that I am missing? Or, is there a better way to achieve what I am trying to do?
