Normal tray icon not displayed if indicator-applet not used

Asked by Sukochev Roman (Leolik) on 2010-05-04

Binary package hint: transmission

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS x86_64
Transmission 1.92 (10363)

I don't like indicator-applet and disable it. Then in settings.json add that changes:

"show-notification-area-icon": 0,
"show-tray-icon": 1,

but after this, when run Transmission - it not displayed in tray.
how back normal tray icon for transmission, which used in Ubuntu 9.10?

Sorry for my English.

Looking at the downstream appindicator patch, it doesn't seem to be possible with a copy of Transmission compiled with HAVE_LIBAPPINDICATOR defined -- the non-appindicator icon code is not compiled in the Ubuntu builds. Unfortunately it looks like you would need to roll your own copy.

Can you help with this problem?
