With the removal of
notification-area, what program now handles those few applications still using it?
My use case is the following: I have a legacy application in my start up applications that requires the notification area to be running before it can start up (otherwise I get an error about no system tray being around). Therefor I had written a little bash script that checked every few seconds whether
notification-area was already in the running programs and if so, it would start up the program.
What program would be the new one to check for?
PS: I realize I could also add a
sleep for x seconds and then just run the program regardless, but I see that as an ugly workaround.
Note: This question isn't about allowing the icon to be shown, I have set that setting to
all the first day I started using Unity. This is about my program starting up before the program that handles the notification area and thus failing because there is simply no systray yet.
