I want the mail icon (indicator applet) in the panel to open thunderbird when I click mail, and when I click "new message" that tbird message opens. I've already got the notification going, and I have removed evolution.
I thought I was removing the chat status piece of the indicator applet (I know what it is now, didn't then), but I accidentally removed the whole thing. Now when I figured out how to put it back on the panel, I can't get it back to where it was (which was to the RIGHT of the system date/time applet). How can I do this as well as move the indicator applet that has the volume control in it?
I was using both the Indicator Applet and the Notification Area applets in my panel but realized that very often when I started the system, the icons of these applet appeared mixed. Some items were duplicated (for example the keyboard indicator) where others were missing (sometimes the battery indicator, sometimes the sound indicator, etc). When that happened I had to remove them and add them to panel again.
This seems to be a bug that makes one applet interfere with the other (maybe because there are some items that appear in both but when you add both initially nothing is duplicated but after a system restart the problem happens).After searching for some way to fix this apparent bug without success I decided to remove the Indicator applet and keep just the Notification Area.
It works but then I don't have the sound applet anymore, because it was part of the Indicator Applet. I searched for a standalone sound applet but I couldn't find any. Do you know of any such applet that I could install in the system? If I can find any it would be fine to me and I would be satisfied using just the Notification Area.
Had ubuntu for a few years left came back last month. I lost the indicator applet in the panel. I don't know what I did to get it back. I feel like this is a very very simple thing to fix but I just can't find it. Here is a pic of what i'm talking about.
I removed the "indicator applet" from the default gnome panel at the top of the default Lucid desktop. Doing so resulted in me losing the ability to control the sound from the panel, which I value so I put it back.Once I restored the indicator applet to the panel, the nm-applet went missing. I'm still connecting to my home network with no problem, so the function is there, but the little icon that updates when you're trying to connect, shows signal strength, and other available networks is now missing. This I've searched the problem and haven't found any solutions that work, I think because of the new applet integration, but I'm very surprised this hasn't been found by someone yet!
Ive been looking and have found some python scripts to add apps to the indicator-applet and I was wondering if anyone knew an app or script the would add an rss reader to the indicator-applet, any rss reader would be great for now
I have installed ubuntu 10.04 yesterday. I also placed the indicator-applet to my top panel.
My question is: It is lacking the textbox. I see every detail that should be there in the menu, except for the input-textbox. Can anyone tell me how I can get this back?
I've been searching the forums, but could not find a solution (nor anyone else having this problem, though I remembered someone else stating the same issue before I experienced it, but I couldn't find it back... must be murphy's law )
the indicator applet on Lucid has a clock, so that I now have two in my panel: the clock applet and the one in the indicator applet. I prefer the clock applet and would like to get rid of the clock in the indicator applet.
It should be possible, since the clock only shows up on my desktop PC, not my laptop.
Sometime yesterday, I noticed that I couldn't turn off the computer using the indicator in the top right corner because of a glitch in how the clock is displayed. As you can see in the screenshot below, the indicator applet is hidden and I had no idea how to "refresh" the panel so that the indicator applet would show again. Although this doesn't happen often, I encounter this problem from time to time.
I'm using the indicator applet on my top-panel with gm-notify, but the only mail-client I use is the gmail webUI, so I don't need the entries above, just the bottom two entries related to gmail. any way to accomplish this?... is there a config-file for the indicator applet?
here's a screenshot:
I want to remove the first three entries in that list.
I am trying to use the indicator applet instead of the old notification area. I've noticed that just like the notification area, the indicator applet get its icons from the "status" folder of whatever icon theme you're using. However, I've tried changing various status icons for different programs and the changes are never reflected in the indicator applet. Updating the gnome icon cache, rebooting the pc, and removing/readding the indicator applet do nothing. Does the indicator applet have some other secret icon cache that needs to be cleared?
I'm referring to this up in the right, I think its name it's indicator applet (I'm not sure):What I want to do is to remove the chat and mail icon and enable a weather icon. I've googled but I didn't find any helpful answer.
I want to edit (remove some items, especially evolution) from the "Indicator Applet Complete" present in the right top corner. I'm using Natty in classic mode. How can I do this? I do not want the chat, mail and ubuntu one options in my panel.
I goofed and deleted my all the indicators on the right of the top panel on Gnome in 11.04 I sure would like them back especially the sessions menu. I've tried "Add to Panel" but they aren't the same ones that were there before.
Ubuntu has a pair of packages called indicator-applet and indicator-applet-session.
The latter (-session) applet is what shows your user name on the panel (like the switch users applet in Fedora), but it also shows an icon representing your current status in Pidgin, and clicking the applet lets you change your status in Pidgin as well as log out or switch users.
indicator-applet in Ubuntu 9.10 sits by default next to the notification area and shows an e-mail icon, and allegedly is supposed to tell you how many unread messages you have in your e-mail client. I've never configured my e-mail in Ubuntu as I rarely use that OS so I can't say for sure.
Is it feasible to get these applets ported over to Fedora? Would a deb-to-rpm converter work, or would there be a nightmare of dependency issues since these applets seem to be something Canonical made themselves and that's why only Ubuntu has them?
i am using lucid beta 1 and indicator applet shows my user name. i know it is also the case for karmic. is there any way to change it so that it shows my full name? because it looks much more formal if it shows my full name instead of my "nickname".
In the indicator-applet next to the clock, I have a list of programs which includes Pidgin. Now it used to be a case where if I opened Pidgin logged onto the services and closed the window, it would run in the background and i could re-open the window from the indicator-applet and get notifications of people logging on etc.Now for one reason or another that doesnt happen no more. I can open it through the applet, but if i close the window, it shuts the program down...also if Pidgin is running, i get NO notifications of people logging on, new messages etc.
I accidentally installed a partial upgrade, and Empathy was removed from the indicator applet (next to Evolution Mail under the envelope icon). How can I restore it? PS: When this happened, I had no idea that partial upgrades could cause problems in our PCs, such as removing packages..
