I really don't recommend using my sacy-tests PPA 'blindly' (mentioned in the answers by @alwaysask and @tolima). Because it contains changes to many packages, some quite specific. One should take the time to read the descriptions to see if any or all these changes are wanted. (When using add-apt-repository you are given the opportunity to review them ...) ...

Similar thing happened to me after upgrade to 13.10. I found that this bug describes it: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/indicator-datetime/+bug/1237361 I have it solved now, not sure if by installing system updates, by changing all related attributes in dconf-editor for node com.canonical.indicator.datetime or just by restarting unity ...

There does not appear to be anyway to remove the mouse from the power indicator menu using the built-in configuration options. What you can do though is select the indicator icon and clear "Show time in the menu bar..." It is not really the solution any of us want but it does remove the ugly "estimating..."

I think Writing indicators with Python, GIR and GTK3 ,as mentioned by @fossfreedom, covers how create indicators for Unity. (Read that 1st) I'm using Ubuntu 14.04, Quickly 12.08.1 . This is demo for a complete working example build from a Quickly template. OP wants just indicator (not complete GUI app) so let's start with ubuntu-cli Quickly template: ...

To change Application Indicators position on the Unity panel, you must edit a file called ordering-override.keyfile which is located under /usr/share/indicator-application. Since editing this file will change the settings for all users, you can copy it to ~/.local/share/indicators/application/ordering-override.keyfile and make the changes for your user only: ...

I'm the author of StackApplet, so hopefully I can help shed some light on what's going on here. First of all, the version in the Software Center is currently broken. This is because Stack Exchange recently shut down version 1.x of their public API (which StackApplet used). Right before this happened, I updated the source code and release StackApplet 1.5.2, ...

Replace: import glib with: from gi.repository import GLib as glib And the code should work as is, although you need a global ind at the beginning of start_gtk_main(), otherwise ind is created local to the function and you get an exception in handler_timeout() that ind is None.

Update: a work-around was added in the Copy client so the instructions below are no longer needed if you use the latest Copy! The Copy.com client indicator menu doesn't work properly in Ubuntu 14.04 and 13.10 due to a bug in libdbusmenu. This bug was fixed in Ubuntu 14.10 and I'm not sure when it will be fixed in older Ubuntu versions but you can get the ...
