EOS-update-notifier tray problem

I have the EOS-update-notifier set to tray and it shows up when there are updates, however when clicking the icon, no matter how, it opens the updater and the icon that drops into position when the EOS-update-notifier one disappears. So two apps open for the one click. It is not a major problem just an annoyance and possibly an easy fix.

Thanks for the report, I’ll start checking it very soon.

Could you show in detail which two apps open?
And could you show the contents of your /etc/eos-update-notifier.conf?

The second app is usually the xfce-mailwatch-plugin which opens the mail reader. It has been networks as well but I can’t recall if that was once or twice.

### eos-update-notifier configuration file

## Check also updates from AUR:
CheckAurUpdates=yes          # yes or no

## Note: the AUR helper program can be set in file
## /etc/eos-script-lib-yad.conf, variable EOS_AUR_HELPER.

## Use additional EOS updater.
## This program will be called by the eos-update-notifier after
## updating Arch/EOS and AUR packages.
## Input parameter is the log file name.
## Additional updater must return a similar exit code as 'checkupdates'.

## Check also Arch news for you:
CheckArchNewsForYou=no      # yes or no

## Check news while updating?
AllowNewsCheckWhileUpdating=yes   # yes or no

## Alternative programs for showing the Arch news. Select one.
## Note: 'arch-news-for-you' uses an ad hoc way to determine if the news are
##       relevant to your machine. This mostly works well, but not always.
##       The 'eos-arch-news' shows news based on the date and shows only news
##       that are not yet shown.
## This option was added in eos-update-notifier version 0.9-1.
ArchNewsProg=eos-arch-news    # values: 'eos-arch-news' or 'arch-news-for-you'

## Prefer tray notification or small window for nofitying about updates?
## NOTE: if clicking the tray notification icon launches also the next panel item,
## a workaround is either to
##  - re-organize panel's notification area icons so that 'Yad' is not the first (uppermost), or
##  - add an empty launcher right next to the tray notification icon.
ShowHowAboutUpdates=tray     # value: 'notify', 'notify+tray', 'tray', or 'window'

## What info to show about pending updates ("number of updates" or "package names");
## applies only when 'ShowHowAboutUpdates' is set to 'window':
ShowWhatAboutUpdates=number  # values: 'number' or 'packages'

This is my panel without the update notification, as I already did them.

Please try rearranging the tray notification icons.

I remember there was a problem related to their order, but don’t remember what it was exactly.

I have done, I will report after the next update. Thank you.

Edit, I did the test run and the volume icon was not activated, so it is OK in this order.
