I've installed both software on my Ubuntu 14.04, using the instructions here: http://screenfreeze.net/deskcon-ppa/

Everything worked, but after a restart I see deskcon-indicator in the taskbar, but it doesn't work.

It seems deskcon-server was not loaded, so I killed deskcon-indicator and started deskcon-server from terminal:

$ sudo deskcon-server

Then I launched deskcon-indicator:

$ deskcon-indicator 
$ ERROR:dbus.proxies:Introspect error on net.screenfreeze.desktopconnector:/net/screenfreeze/desktopconnector: dbus.exceptions.DBusException: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name net.screenfreeze.desktopconnector was not provided by any .service files
