Status Notification Missing

Asked by Underberg on 2017-04-11

On my Ubuntu 16.04 Unity the status notification does not appear when sbackup is running.
I found a few possibilities to solve the problem but nothing of them worked for me.

Someone out there with an idea what the problem is?
Thanks in advance.

Thanks a lot for your help.
I have replaced my original /usr/share/sbackup/sbackup/util/ with the new one I downloaded here.
Unfortunately after restart ubuntu and running sbackup no indicator appeared in the system tray.
Very unfortunate that it does not work. I am out of town two weeks from now. Maybe you get another idea what the problem could be. Thanks again, I appreciate you helped with.

Hi, Can you test with the new version of that file again ?

Thanks again!
I replaced my actual /usr/share/sbackup/sbackup/util/ with file
This time the indicator appeared in the system tray, unbelievable.
What's the difference?

Thanks Oumar Aziz OUATTARA, that solved my question.

There were 2 issues, but basically, Sbackup was not able to find out if the desktop you were using was Unity, Gnome or something else.
