I installed the beautiful application "Listen" this morning, however when I started it, its applet within the indicator menue was somehow shown green-ish.


My first thought was that well, maybe the png is indeed with a green background (even though that wouldn't make sense). But I checked all the icons in /usr/share/listen/img/, and as far as I can tell, they're all with a transparent background.

I'm running 10.04.1 Netbook Remix on a Asus Eeepc 1002HA

Is that really an indicator or just part of the system tray? – Nick HS Oct 24 '10 at 13:50
@Nick HS: Yep, you're right, it's indeed a system tray icon (see accepted answer). Damn menue bar.. Some application icons are part of the indicator panel, and some aren't. – jengtron Oct 24 '10 at 23:17

The tray icon (it is not an application indicator) is supposed to be transparent.
There is a bug report on this:
