Since I upgraded to Ubuntu 14.04 LTS ("Trusty Tahr") this afternoon, I now have two bluetooth icons shown in my system tray...

Bluetooth icons in system tray (circled in yellow)

Why do I have two bluetooth icons now shown, and how can I remove one of them?

This is not a duplicate of this: - Why do I have 2 Bluetooth Icons on my panel?

In that question, the icons appear to be the same (mine are different, with VERY different options under each) and the poster wants to remove both... I want to identify the reason there are two, and remove just one of the icons.

I think you have blueman installed, try removing it from the software centre.

Worked a charm, thanks! Just a note to anyone else with this problem, you will probably need to restart before the changes will take effect (I did)... – Gregory Opera Apr 20 '14 at 11:50
