Hello. I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 and its working well. I did a kill command to terminate indicator-applet processes which was done successfully and the applet was gone. But then when I tried to re-login it didn't come back. I've restarted the PC as well but of no use. I'm using Ubuntu classic Desktop. If I switch to Ubuntu then applet is there and everything works Ok. Similarly if I create a new account and login with Ubuntu Classic Desktop, then applet is also there. Its just that my regular login (Ubuntu Classic No Effects) seems to be having problems with "Indicator-Applet". Perhaps my home folder settings have been changed somehow and don't know how to reset them for this particular issue.

Looking forward for a suggestion.

thanks

Hold down WIN and ALT, then right-click on... umm... panel and press add to panel. Add a new applet.

:shock: WoW. Can't believe it was that simple. Thank you Pletched.

Just to add, WIN key is not necessary. Merely holding down ALT key does the job.
