I installed my Ubuntu 12.04 desktop after a dependency loop hell.
After I re-installed the Unity panel shows all application icons whenever the app is loaded.
For example I can now always see VMware and X-Chat where on every previous install these icons never showed no matter how much I wanted them too sometimes.
These indicators are starting to fill up my taskbar and was wondering how to make them go away.
For example I want Thunderbird, Empathy and X-Chat to be able to be closed to the messaging menu like they did in all my other previous installs.
Also I have X-Chat indicator installed but it will not allow me to close to messaging menu - I have to have the indicator icon enabled in order to close it.
Any assistance in these issues would be greatly appreciated.
