    no systray icons (tested: tomboy/skype/hamster/indicator-multiload)

    dear forum,
    i can no confirm that no systray icons are shown on my all new install of 13.10 on my lenovo thinkpad x201t.
    i have installed skype/tomboy/hamster/indicator-multiload and started them all from the dash. i looked for each
    with ps ax an know that they are running:

    Code:
     
    1613 ?        Sl     1:39 indicator-multiload
    5061 ?        Sl     0:00 /usr/bin/python /usr/bin/hamster-indicator
    8212 ?        Sl     0:03 mono /usr/lib/tomboy/Tomboy.exe --search
    8364 ?        Sl     0:05 skype
    yet, no icons.

    thanks for any comments/hints and all the hard work!!!

    what to do? try a workaround or wait? i wonder, many people will have the same problem - right?! a big thing.. or is it just going to be fixed by the developers (if i understood right it is the developres of each program that have to fix it...)

    tomboy has an app indicator, currently works fine
    indicator-multiload has an app indicator, also works fine
    hamster has a seperate indicator package named "hamster-indicator", works fine
    (screen shows all 3
    skype, don't know, don't feel like installing

    As far as the systray in unity, that ppa will likely have saucy packages come release or so

    (I keep a current saucy unity build with systray enabled in a ppa but also have changes the launcher expo icon to work for 1x4 workspaces so of overall limited value... & having a systray enabled has no effect of whether app indicators show or not, I only really use for vlc whose app indicator is crap
