You can add the notification applet to the gnome-panel as shown in the picture. To add, ALT+Win and right-click the gnome-panel to add the notification applet. However, banshee is fully integrated in the sound-indicator, to perhaps the use of the notification icon is not required.

With both Gnome 3 and Unity interfaces the current & possibly future directions of the newer linux distros, my advise would be not to look backwards, but to consider alternative desktop interfaces. XFCE is such an example, with many of the application indicators you previously have used. You can either try a brand new install of Xubuntu - or just ...

Right click on the panel and choose 'Panel' -> 'Panel Preferences'. Then go to 'Items' and add a seperator that you move with the arrows to the desired place. Close that window and do another right click now to the area where the seperator is located, enter the 'Properties' and choose 'Expand'.

ALLTRAY AllTray is a program written for Unix-like systems to enable a user to dock any program (such as Evolution, Thunderbird, or a terminal program) into the system tray. This is mostly useful when one wants to have a program always running, but easy to put out of the way. with AllTray, you can minimize any app to the system tray.

Sure, you can use alltray for that :) Look it up in Applications -> Ubuntu Software Center, or use this command: sudo apt-get install alltray EDIT To minimize the program, run alltray and point to the Window of it. It will hide in the tray. To hide/unhide to/from Tray, click the Tray icon of the program :)

The problem is related to notify-send, it ignores the timeout parameter: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/notify-osd/+bug/390508 Jupiter uses notify-send to create the desktop notifications. As a workaround the Jupiter's notify script can be edited and all -t parameters removed: sudo sed -i 's/-t [0-9]\+//g' /usr/lib/jupiter/scripts/notify The ...

Yes, the notification area is going to be removed in 11.04. From the Canonical Design blog: Our roadmap is that in Ubuntu 11.04, one year from now, there will be no notification area. And in Ubuntu Netbook Edition, we’ll remove it even earlier, in 10.10. So if you develop an application that uses the notification area, and you want the millions of Ubuntu ...

In a nutshell, what you are trying to achieve is not possible. This is caused by a bug, which will be a bit difficult to solve, due to some changes in GNOME3. There is not longer a separate gnome-power-manager process. It's now a plugin of gnome-settings-daemon. If you disable the plugin, you will lose power management. If you use another power manager, ...

This is a bug that should be fixed in the next release, in the meantime there is a workaround: Included in the tarball are the 246 iso country coded "flag" icons for the keyboard indicator in 22px size for a dark panel background. Each of these flags consists of a box with the two letters of the iso code inside. By untarring this archive into ...

Goto com -> canonical -> indicator -> messages In applications append the value 'pidgin.desktop', please don't replace the older values.

Pidgin won't hook to the messaging tray icon in 12.10 due to this bug. As a workaround until that's fixed, something similar to what the OP describes as “the suggested solution” will work; the path you want is com.canonical.Unity.Panel.systray-whitelist. The problem is this uses Pidgin's normal tray icons, which don't fit the Ubuntu colour standard... but I ...

The solution is to change the mount point to /mnt/"something". Modify your fstab and it shouldn't show the unmount option any longer. Then you may bind mount it to the directory you want: UUID=your_uuid_here /mnt/DATA ext4 defaults 0 2 /mnt/DATA /home/yrogirg/DATA none bind 0 0

Starting 13.04, applications will have to integrate into the indicators and can no longer have their own status icons in systray in Unity. (This may change in future.) The Unity systray whitelist has been removed, so you can no longer whitelist applications to allow them to use the notification area in Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail. However, Java and Wine ...

Open System Settings Click on the ‘Region and Language’ tile Uncheck the box next to ‘Show Current Input Source in Menu Bar’ And that’s it. The switcher is now hidden. http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2013/10/turn-new-keyboard-applet-ubuntu-13-10

You are talking about the "keyboard layout notification". It allows you to easily switch between different keyboard layouts. To disable it, right click on the icon, select text Entry Settings, you get a dialog, there at the bottom unselect Show current input source in the menu bar.

You have the right idea using the command sleep 3 && tilda, but that doesn't work. If you look in ~/.xsession-errors you probably find the following error message: sleep: invalid time interval `&&' sleep: invalid time interval `tilda' Try `sleep --help' for more information. This is because the command is not executed like it would be if ...

Make sure you are not experiencing this bug (Launchpad.net) Sometimes, the Skype indicator is only one green pixel. It's easy to overlook and assume there is no indicator at all. If this is the case, just quit and restart Skype and it will come back normally. I have this quite often.

There are no such firewalls for Linux. You are welcome to read a somewhat exhaustive discussion on the subject at ubuntuforums.org. To summarize, it pretty much boils down to the cliche - Linux != Windows. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1591340&highlight=application+based+firewall

As far as I know the answer to both questions is unfortunately "no". Details (but I'm going to simplify here anyway): firewall that actively informs me when a certain program is trying to access the internet The kernel net filter that firewalls use does not work well on the application level, so it is not used for that purpose. Though it is generally ...

From your software center there is an application called fwanalog. It claims that it will analyse logged events from a configured iptables based firewall such a gufw. It will write html logs which you can browse (/var/log/fwanalog) - results are displayed as both text statistics and as pie-charts etc. Its does not answer your "active" reports part of your ...
