Currently I have way to many indicators/icons on my system tray. Is it possible that auto hide will be added in future Ubuntu versions?

    As long as we don't get a Windows "they autohide, and when you tell them not to, they autohide"... – Kazark Jul 7 '12 at 13:36

If you have too many indicators then some of your indicators probably shouldn't be indicators. Perhaps take a look at the Design guidelines to work out which ones these are.

(This is my personal view, I'm not sure how it tallies with the view of the Ayatana team.)

  • I personally agree partly in the sense that some indicators really don't need to be (in the way they currently are - that is they could be amalgamated as KDE does with some things) but still autohide should be an option. – RolandiXor Jan 11 '11 at 21:39
  • Yes, chat with the author of the indicators about fitting into one of the category indicators, like sound, messaging etc. – Mark Shuttleworth Jan 14 '11 at 2:32
  • @Mark Shuttleworth @fluteflute thanks :) - P.S. I still want a hiding option, but that could work :P – RolandiXor Jan 16 '11 at 22:46
