Ubuntu – Indicator icons do not appear after upgrade to Ubuntu 17.10


Only GNOME extension and native icons are displayed. Other icons like Dropbox, shutter, enpass etc. do not appear in the top bar.

Am I missing something? I already tried using extensions that I used with GNOME before but nothing (Topicons Plus, Ubuntu appindicators etc.) seems to help.

Currently I'm using Ubuntu Xorg, but in Wayland I have the same issue.

I've encountered the same problem. I tried to remove the indicator-application-service completely, and see, the problem went away! I guess coming from 16.04 leaves some Unity-related stuff on my machine that is not only obsolete but prevents the AppIndicator extension from properly working.

What to do:

sudo apt remove indicator-application
