I'm looking for a Indicator Menu, that replaces the notification area. Any Systray Icon should be in a Identicator Menu, because on Netbooks the Application Menus and the Systray Icons overlap sometimes

  • Can you clarify your question? I have no idea what you're asking for here. – Jorge Castro Jan 22 '11 at 22:56
  • you know the systray, where all the application icons live, like Dropbox, Networkmanager and so on. I want to move all these Icons in one single drop down menu – burli Jan 22 '11 at 23:01

If I understand your question correctly, you are not looking for a menu but for a GNOME applet that will integrate into a panel and display these icons in an expandable menu-like view. There is no such applet that I know of, but you state that you need this in order to solve space problems on a netbook. If so, I'd suggest creating a second panel, moving the "panel notification area" (aka systray) there and setting the panel to a small size and autohide somewhere on a screen edge.

Alternatively, you could also move any other elements from your main panel there -- I generally create an auto-hiding application launcher on the right screen edge where it does not take away space and is easily reachable by "throwing" the mouse to the top right corner.

  • It's for Unity, not Gnome – burli Jan 23 '11 at 6:59
