at-spi (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: at-spi


  If Assistive Technologies (System>Preferences>Assistive Technologies) is enabled, the Cisco AnyConnect VPN client UI (panel icon/applet) does not appear, even though the daemon may be running. For some reason, there is a crash; "Error metadata: Cannot create custom icon".

Please see description on Cisco forums:;jsessionid=EBD9B889499E7BFC599FA92ED0D80B09.node0

  Unfortunately, Cisco won't fix anything without being paid to do so.
