Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Move Indicator Session Applet To The Right Of The System Date/clock Applet

May 6, 2010

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?

Ubuntu :: Indicator Applet Session - Mangled / Unusable

Jun 25, 2010

Windows refugee here trying out different flavors of Linux. I like Ubuntu a lot but have noticed some peculiar behavior sometimes with the Indicator Applet Session becoming mangled and unusable. If I click on it nothing happens. I haven't determined any particular cause yet but it seems to have happened twice after using Google's Chrome browser.

Ubuntu :: Remove A Menu Item From The Indicator Applet Session?

Apr 6, 2010

The indicator applet session gnome-panel applet (the one that lets you change your status for empathy/pidgin, logout, switch user, etc.) has the suspend and hibernate options. My computer will not suspend or hibernate properly (every time I try to wake it up, the hard drive will work for about 4 minutes and the screen will stay blank so I have to restart) and I would like to remove those items from the menu. I would just like to know if there is a way to remove the hibernate and suspend items in the indicator applet session menu. I've already tried browsing around gconf-editor to no avail. If it is not possible, let me know

Ubuntu :: Conflict Between Indicator Applet And Notification Area Applet?

May 15, 2011

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.

Ubuntu :: Restoring Nm-applet To 10.04 Indicator Applet?

May 3, 2010

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!

Ubuntu :: No Textbox In Memenu/indicator-applet

Apr 30, 2010

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 )

Ubuntu :: Remove Clock From Indicator Applet?

May 11, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Clock Hides Indicator Applet

Aug 17, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Indicator Applet Icons Not Updating?

Feb 8, 2011

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?

Fedora :: Gnome Indicator-applet ?

Nov 16, 2009

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?

Or has anybody already created RPMs for them?

Ubuntu :: Pidgin And Indicator-applet Not Playing Nicely

Apr 15, 2010

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.
