Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-shell

If we're going to have mail-checking and instant messaging support in gnome-shell, it'll be pretty important to have support for the indicator/messaging-menu protocol, even if there's no "applet" support per se.

What if the indicator-applet could be a notification/tray icon instead of a legacy libpanel-applet2 applet? Is there anything about the indicator-applet that would particular preclude this from happening?

Alternatively, does this need to be re-implemented in gnome-shell directly?

the issue is not a bug in the applet but rather a feature request, nothing stop you to use dbusmenu in other environement though, there is a kde version for example

Since upstream has shot down libappindicator, this feature is unlikely to ever be implemented there. Someone will need to write an Ubuntu-specific patch.

Has this been implemented yet? I can't immediately tell, but it sounds likely to have been resolved since the bug was logged 7+ years ago.
