  • Did you tried to re-install it? To re-install: sudo apt-get -f install --reinstall uget. If it doesn't work then try to remove it first then install again. Reply.. – Saurav Kumar Oct 29 '13 at 16:38
  • i already tried reinstalling,removing, but it didn't change anything, the official ppa has builds only till raring – Dzero Oct 29 '13 at 16:46
  • Edit your question and post the output of these commands: sudo dpkg -l | grep -e "^rc" -e "^iU" and sudo dpkg -l | grep uget. – Saurav Kumar Oct 29 '13 at 16:59
  • OMG! You've a lot of residual packages. I'm in dilemma now how to solve this issue. Any way let me post the answer, hope it would help you. – Saurav Kumar Oct 29 '13 at 17:33

uGet does not have an official 13.10 version yet but we are working on a version for it. However, the repo of 13.10 has finally been updated to 1.10.3 so if you uninstalled and reinstalled from the Ubuntu repo then it will work. Ubuntu's Repo ignored our requests and just pulled in Debian package which they removed the appindicator support which Ubuntu needs.

Ubuntu 13.10 was the first time Ubuntu actually updated uGet in the repo. 13.04 now has a backport but right now only it has a backport.

uGet currently only has official support for 13.04-12.04 but we will be releasing a 13.10 version as soon as possible.

  • I guess i'll have to wait till the next version is out! – Dzero Oct 30 '13 at 17:58
  • uGet 1.10.4 is fixed in Ubuntu 14.04 but 13.10 is still outdated but the PPA and the DEB from the official site is now up to date. - ugetdm.com/downloads-ubuntu – Michael Tunnell Mar 7 '14 at 16:02

I am not sure but you can use this program from https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/applications/sni-qt/ ; or use the terminal sudo apt-get install sni-qt sni-qt:i386 ;

This program must solve the problem of system tray with programs' icons.

First remove all residual packages using this command:

sudo apt-get remove --purge $(sudo dpkg -l | grep "^rc" | awk '{print $2}' | tr '\n' ' ')

Then try to install appmenu-gtk , appmenu-gtk3, indicator-application,indicator-appmenu,indicator-applet-complete if removed accidently:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -f install appmenu-gtk appmenu-gtk3 indicator-application indicator-appmenu indicator-applet-complete

Watch carefully the messages given while install, as it may the clue to solve the problem. Also be sure that while installing, non of the packages are going to be removed.

Edit

It is clear that you've got a bug.

So it is good to launch a bug and help the developer to acquaint about it.

There is a good post here which will give you all the information to launch the bug:

How do I report a bug?

And yes you can report bugs related to Uget here:

http://ugetdm.com/reportbug

Thanks to Michael Tunnell to tell about this link.

  • all tha residual packages were removed, installed the packages, but still no icon! – Dzero Oct 29 '13 at 18:33
  • Now I'll only ask: Are you sure that the option Always show tray icon is checked under edit-> Settings-> UISettings? Also post the output of sudo dpkg -l | grep indicator. Reply.. – Saurav Kumar Oct 29 '13 at 18:38
  • i'm 100% sure that it's checked, here is a screenshot, as for the output of sudo dpkg -l | grep indicator i'll add it to the question. – Dzero Oct 29 '13 at 19:13
  • Now you proved that everything is fine! It is looking weird now! I don't know what is the problem.. I'm stuck now! – Saurav Kumar Oct 29 '13 at 19:36

I just found how to fix this

It seems that the build in the Ubuntu repositories is causing the problem, and when upgraded, Uget (1.10.3-0)was upgraded to the version in the Ubuntu repository (1.10.3-1)

I removed uget :

sudo apt-get remove --purge uget

Then removed the config files :

rm -rf '/home/abdou/.config/uGet'

Downloaded & installed the version in the official site :

wget https://launchpadlibrarian.net/138646189/uget_1.10.3-0ubuntu0%7Eraring_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i uget_1.10.3-0ubuntu0~raring_i386.deb
  • the problem is the ubuntu repo ignored every attempt we made to update the app...and just pulled in the Debian package. Debian doesn't use appindicator so because of that Ubuntu pulled in a package that didn't include it thus the lack of system tray applet. – Michael Tunnell Nov 27 '13 at 15:55
  • "Downloaded & installed the version in the official site" how on earth is "launchpadlibrarian" the official site? The official site is ugetdm.com – Michael Tunnell Mar 7 '14 at 16:01
