I upgraded my Ubuntu 17.10 install to 18.04 yesterday, and I'm noticing that I don't have any AppIndicators anymore. Here's what I tried that didn't work:

  • Enable Ubuntu AppIndicators in the gnome tweak tools
  • Enable Ubuntu dock in the gnome tweak tools
  • Installed the KStatusNotifierItem gnome extension. It fixed the issue for a few minutes, then upon reboot the icons disappeared again and reinstalling it didn't work.


I experimented a bit with GNOME shell extensions and it was Topicons who brought my indicator for Clementine music player back.
