Ubuntu

Topshelf and Gnome 3

Asked by Carl Thayer on 2012-01-30

Hi; I have upgraded to 11.10 and am using the gnome 3 panel and still have topshelf installed (I can see in Packages) but cannot see or add the applet when I alt/rightclick on the gnome panel. Also I don't know how to run topshelf as "standalone" can you help please?

This question was originally filed as bug #923857.

This is a support question for a program, not a bug.

Hi! The program "Topshelf" was created for an older version of gnome and will not be compatible with gnome 3. Unfortunately, it seems like you're going to have to find a replacement.

Hi Carl,

I'm afraid Topshelf is no longer compatible with Debian/Ubuntu :(.

would it be incompatible on ubuntu 10.04 also. i installed topshelf 0.3.1-1 from synaptic. i first faced the problem that it wasnt showing in the accessories - so i added the path /usr/lib/gnome-panel/topshelf.py for running it from the applications > accessories menu - then i added it in panel but even on adding in panel it is running as a separate application and not as an applet - am i doing something wrong?

Can you help with this problem?
