View Full Version : [ubuntu] Indicator/Notification applets

April 2nd, 2009, 08:14 PM
Just upgraded from Intrepid to Jaunty and everything is running great! Things seem much improved and some small graphical glitches I had have cleared up as well as it running smoother overall.

The only problem I'm having is the difference between the Notification and Indicator applets. I did not like the big black box popping up everytime someone sent an IM or logged on/off in pidgin. But I think I fixed that in pidgin's options. I also removed both Notification and Indicator applet trying to figure out how to turn the black msg box off.

Now I do not get the icon letting me know update-manager has updates for me to install. This I would still like to have. It also shows the blue swirl when a restart is needed after updates. How to I get this to function like before?
