When clicking on the klipper icon on the unity bar nothing happens. No drop down list. Is there anybody able to resolve it?..

  • Does Klipper, by default, place itself on the Unity dock or the top panel? – Thomas Boxley Jul 12 '11 at 17:05

    The situation seems to be the same, but if people who have the same problem see stuff about Shutter at the top of a search result, then they don't think the problems are ultimately the same. I don't think it's a duplicate. – Thomas Boxley Jul 12 '11 at 17:11

It may be an issue with Klipper not being white listed.

You could try these sets of commands:

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

and then you run

gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Panel systray-whitelist "['JavaEmbeddedFrame', 'Mumble', 'Wine', 'Skype', 'hp-systray', 'klipper']"

some additional reading resources can be found here(where i found it at least):



  • Thanks . But it is not working . Still the same issue. – aneeshep Jul 27 '11 at 3:16
