I've updated my plasma version to 5.7 and some of tray icons (like Skype or google chrome) are missing. How to fix it?

  • Is it ubuntu? How did you get an update? Did you build the sources by yorself? I ask because I cannot find ppa but want to update. – Grief Jul 20 '16 at 1:07
  • Actually, it is not Ubuntu but a distribution of it, KDE Neon. – xxx Jul 21 '16 at 18:13
  • Exactly as I thought. Kubuntu backports ppa hasn't been updated at the moment when I asked yet, but now plasma 5.7.1 is there. Anyway, thanks for the reply. Cheers! – Grief Jul 21 '16 at 18:48
  • @Grief your comment is confusing. 5.7.1 is not available in the PPA. – RolandiXor Aug 25 '16 at 19:24
  • @RolandiXor Now even 5.7.2 is available and it almost free of bug (I only marked konsole, konsole-data and yakuake as 'hold'): launchpad.net/~kubuntu-ppa – Grief Aug 25 '16 at 19:31

I had the same issue when upgraded from 5.6 to 5.7, found a fix in this post:


The icon issue can be fixed by opening terminal and typing:
sudo apt remove sni-qt sni-qt:i386 plasma-systray-legacy
and restarting the apps.

Removing "sni-qt", "sni-qt:i386", "plasma-systray-legacy" solved the issue.
