Bug Description

Binary package hint: indicator-applet

Currently, indicator-applet doesn't work with GNOME 3's Panel, because it still uses Gtk2. It just needs building with Gtk3.

This item is in the Oneiric blueprints for Gnome 3 migration but nothing has happened concerning gnome-panel compatibility. All the other indicator packages have been migrated.

Is this being followed up on?

Classic session with gnome-panel is being maintained as fallback session. Unfortunately gnome-panel without any indicators is not so useful.

Many people still prefer to use classic panels instead of Unity, so we really need indicators support for Panel 3.

Indicator-applet is already ported to DBus API (see bug 671477) and builds without deprecations (bug 655628), so the only thing that is needed to be done is building with Gtk3.

@ted: Will you do this? If no, I can.

summary: - need packaging whit gtk3
+ Build with Gtk3

One more note: GtkHBox and GtkVBox are now deprecated, and GtkBox ( should be used instead.
