I have a problem with steam that the app indicator in the unity panel doesn't show anything, where it should show my recent games, friends and settings, etc. It only shows a blank black vertical bar. Although everything works perfectly, i.e. launching games, playing etc., but it's just a small hitch that becomes annoying after some time. I am posting two screenshots that will make clear of what i am saying.
Here's the terminal output: http://imgur.com/a/xpPZP
and here is the snap of the application indicator http://imgur.com/a/5EZwE
Any help would be appreciated as i have been searching for a solution for days and couldn't find one.
