comment Can't shutdown and logout from top panel in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
yes, but it's an independent project. like cairo, can be used in any desktop but it's lighter and simpler

comment Can't shutdown and logout from top panel in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
as seen in the bug report linked in other answer and comment, this is caused not only by Cairo Dock. I only wanted to point out that while for the author of the question as well as for you the problem is solved by adjusting cairo's startup, it is not solved in all cases in this way. asking a new question about plank would be a duplicate of this one, because it is the same problem, and needs (and has, in the other answer) the same solution. on the other hand, it might be possible for your solution to be transposed for Plank, but I do not know how

comment Can't shutdown and logout from top panel in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
Great, but I do not know whether it's better; the 15 secs difference may or may not be more important than the fact that this is a bit more difficult to implement than the other solutions; also, it looks limited to cairo-dock as far as I can see, while the bug is not. The other solutions can easily be adjusted to fix other docks. I use Plank myself and cannot test this now. Can it be adjusted for other docks? - While the above bounty will be granted to the other answer, I do not mind granting a second :)

as stated in the bug report, this is also triggered by other docks, like Plank, in fact by any application which is registered to LauncherEntry interface of Unity DBus and is started before Unity

comment How to replace tray icons for applications in cinnamon
I think this question is too large, because there is no one universal method for changing the system tray icons. Some changes are easily done through the application itself, most of them depend on the icon themes, and changing or editing those may be the best way. But some, like Skype, would not allow changing the tray icon in none of the above ways.

comment How to replace tray icons for applications in cinnamon
your terminology is obscure. I have edited to make it clear, but also I should flag it to be closed because it is too general in scope. Or maybe you should edit it or create separate questions for the different applications. Dropbox will fit very easily the desktop if you use proper icon set. Skype is very difficult. Somebody has created a separate build only to change the tray icon. I think one of your links is to that Russian site. Clementine for example is also difficult to edit. But skype is the toughest.

comment How to replace tray icons for applications in cinnamon
You say: "The word "tray" doesn't exist in Cinnamon terminology" Not true. The term is used to name a panel applet that comes by default in Linux Mint Cinnamon 17. (When I talk about tray in previous comment that is the one involved.) It is called System Tray. Another one here. Also, the term appears when searched here.

comment How to replace tray icons for applications in cinnamon
Pidgin's Preferences-Interface - System tray icon, Show system tray icon. If set to Always, a Pidgin status icon appears in Cinnamon panel status area (which is a system tray sort of), and that one is not affected by editing the Menu pidgin icon. But that is what the question asks. That status icon stays visible as long as the application is open. Clicking it hides/unhides the Buddy list. What you call an application ("you can move an application anywhere you want on the panel") and you edited there is the launching button. That edit also changes the window tab but not the status (tray)
