jdic on kde problem

I''m running Spark on java 1.6.0 and KDE 3.5.6. When i''m starting Spark on my Linux box, on KDE, i always get an error:


*karwasz@68k:~/svn/spark/target/classes$ ./startup.sh

Error: Couldn''t find per display information*


It is caused by well known bug in jdic tray icon library. In KDE jdic can''t create tray icon.

I have latest svn version, there is also mistake in startup.sh script. In classpath ../lib/windows/jdic.jar should be ../lib/linux/jdic.jar or even ../build/lib/linux/jdic.jar because (in my case) ant script makes lib folder in a subfolder of /target/build/.


I think, there should be an option to disable tray icon in KDE, or (maybe its better solution) jdic should be replaced by native java 6 tray icon library (there are problems with that library too, but it''s better than jdic).
