Bug Description


another report from testing candidate images for Natty Alpha 2 (20110202, amd64).

Both during live session and on the installed system, the tray icon of Network-manager sometimes appears twice (side by side). Both icons seem functional, if that happens. But it does not happen everytime I boot into the fresh installed system, only in, let's say, one of three or four cases.

If I can provide any further debugging help, please let me know.

Kind regards,

I can see the same, but for the bluetooth icon, on my system.

Adding a bug task for indicator-applet. I *think* it's where the issue is... but since here there's only one nm-applet icon and two of bluetooth, the issue is definitely specific to nm-applet.

summary: - Network-manager tray icon appears twice sometimes

Attaching a screenshot for more clarity; this is different from seeing the whole set of indicators doubled, which I have seen happen a couple of times too ;)

On my system (current up to date Natty) every time I log in, I get duplicate icons in the indicator applet - this includes the power manager and bluetooth and sometimes the keyboard layout but not the volume or messaging and I also think that it never includes the network manager.
