Make SDW-Date widget in Qubes invokable by single-click
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Problem: Currently in Qubes, the sdw-date widget needs to be right-clicked upon, for the menu to open. The preferred pattern would be for it to only require a single-click.

One usability problem, is simple discovery. I am on a project working to migrate journalists to Qubes, and a majority of the Global North's journalists are currently Mac users. Mac users don't have right-click. A secondary problem, is that when right-clicking to invoke the menu, it's not intuitive (again, for native Mac users) how to close the menu—and so inadvertently Exiting the Whonix VM, is the only obvious option.

Solution: Single click, not right-click, from the Tray menu widget? :)

@marmarek Is this a Qubes or Whonix thing?

Whonix. I'll ask @marmarta if she can help here.
