What icon theme are you using? – RolandiXor Apr 17 '11 at 21:50
What happens if you click on that icon? What do you call "language icon", is that the keyboard selector? – seb128 Oct 28 '11 at 19:20

This typically happens when you set the option (in gconf) to use "flags" to indicate the current keyboard layout when there are no flag icons installed (there are none by default).

Ok, so where one should put an icon? And how should it be called? – lucacerone Jan 18 '12 at 10:47
