A versatile KDE system tray proxy for scripts.

Konch is a versatile utility that allows you to create system tray applets using standard scripting languages such as bash, Perl, or Python. You can change the icon shown in the tray, apply several effects, and create menus. Konch relays events to your script via command-line parameters or STDIN. Your script can respond by simply printing out appropriate lines (such as a menu listing), or executing a program.
