No appindicator for Workrave. Unable to access settings.

Bug Description


I use Workrave a lot as a preventive measure against RSI. It is a useful little program that I believe is much needed for anyone who uses a computer for long periods of time.

Workrave uses its system tray icon as a means to access settings and preferences. It is possible to get the system tray icon displayed in Unity, but it is a bit of a workaround that most normal users will not have the time and patience for.

Following installation, there is practically no way to access any of Workrave's settings in Unity.

Since Workrave is available in the official repositories I believe it should integrate seamlessly into the Unity environment through its own appindicator.

Thank you
