Notification icon (status icon) does not show up in GNOME 3.24

Audio Recorder

Bug Description


The systray icon is not visible in the GOME 3.24 desktop. GNOME usually shows status icons (as a drawer) at the lower, left corner of the desktop. The "Show icons on systray" option in the [Additional settings] has no effect.

The code of systray in audio-recorder is pretty old (from GTK2 era).

Recommended solution:
Please use the GtkStatusIcon class in GTK3.

The current solution is using Ubuntu^s App_indicator library. This worked until recently on my GNOME-desk, but not anymore. It is best to revert to GtkStatusIcon. AppIndicator is dying anyway because official development of Ubuntu^s Unity stopped?

GNOME-desktop has an extension that displays and supports AppIndicator icons.

With this extension, audio-recorder puts a small icons on the top, right corner of desk (like in Unity). Earlier, GNOME without this extension displayed an icon at the lower, left corner.
