In Ubuntu 13.04 there is no Tray Icon and Whiteliting is removed.
I Installed Gnome 3.8 but there is no tray there too!!
How can I get tray icons back (for applications that put icon in tray like Vuze,Truecrypt,... & have no Indicator) in Unity ?
e.g. a wrapper App Indicator that show old applications icons?

  • Seth's answer does actually work, although in my case it needed an "apt-get install update" and "apt-get install upgrade" to prevent the "No such schema"-error.

Just read about this today in this article How To Get The Sysray Whitelist Back in Ubuntu 13.04.
Hope that helps you out!


If that's what you want, I think the code below solves the problem:

gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Panel systray-whitelist "['all']"

    Unfortunately whitelisting is removed in Ubuntu 13.04 !! that command gives No such schema 'com.canonical.Unity.Panel'
