I just installed Ubuntu 13.10. In the upper right hand corner, instead of the gear icon, a no-entrance icon keeps being displayed, even after reboot. What does that mean? It looks like this:

I get that too in 13.10. It's just a mismatched icon set or something of the sort. I dunno how to fix it though. – Seth Sep 29 '13 at 22:47
means it couldn't find the icon - try replacing it manually - also since it is a bug about the develpement version it is off topic here. – Mateo Sep 29 '13 at 23:29

The icons appear to be not the default ones - have you changed them? Anyway, if you have or not, it's because that icon set doesn't contain that icon. Try changing to the default icons, if you haven't changed anything it's probably a bug.

Thanks, that was it - I had set the icon set to "Unity-icon-theme", whereas I believe the default is Ubuntu-mono-dark. So it doesn't actually mean anything. Good. – Jos Sep 29 '13 at 20:11
