I would like to get my quickstarter to show in unity, or replace it with an indicator. Is this possible?.

I tried Unity 2D, and to my shock, it works there, but refuses to work in unity proper.


I managed to fix it by whitelisting all applications and restarting my computer. Seems unity (3D) needed a few updates to make it work correctly).

NB: I was also able to get it to work with a somewhat crude method of whitelisting:

  • soffice.bin, Soffice.bin, soffice --quickstarter, soffice.bin --quickstarter Soffice --quictkstarter, Soffice.bin --quickstarter

I'm not sure which one exactly did it, but I would have to do further testing with individual values to find the exact value.

If you want to mess with the DConf editor, there is a list of applications that are white listed for working in Unity's partial notification area. However, as for getting an indicator there are none that come to mind.

For your perusal.
