My Appearance menu is missing the Indicators app. I see all the other options that you have in your picture except Indicators. Can you tell me how to add this option to Cairo-Dock? – L. D. James Jan 18 at 14:04
Thanks for your attention and answer to this question. I was able to find the Indicators option by clicking on Icons in the appearance menu. I'm adding an up vote for the usefulness of your answer. – L. D. James Jan 18 at 14:12
