mdh34/elementary-indicators: An unofficial guide to restore indicator functionality on elementary OS | https://github.com/
All that seems to be required for most (exception of gtk2) indicators is

- install 'indicator-application' from the repos
- then the old wingpanel-ayatana-indicator package (https://launchpad.net/~elementary-os/+archive/ubuntu/stable/+files/wingpanel-indicator-ayatana_2.0.3+r27+pkg17~ubuntu0.4.1.1_amd64.deb)
- and follow the instructions from https://pinboard.in/u:kme/b:bc95dba3fa3c to customize its XDG .desktop file so it runs in Pantheon

That is:
Edit /etc/xdg/autostart/indicator-application.desktop:
<code class="language-bash">sudo vim /etc/xdg/autostart/indicator-application.desktop</code>
change:
<code class="language-ini">OnlyShowIn=Unity;GNOME;</code>
to
<code class="language-ini">OnlyShowIn=Unity;GNOME;Pantheon;</code>
and 'killall wingpanel'.

Also of note:
If you copy the file to .config/autostart/indicator-application.desktop then you shouldn't have to worry about it getting overwritten again.

Ayatana indicator has dissapeared (again) from Juno : elementaryos | https://www.reddit.com/
Ok, I found the solution: it was enough to re-edit /etc/xdg/autostart/indicator-application.desktop:
<code class="language-bash">sudo nano /etc/xdg/autostart/indicator-application.desktop</code>

change again:

<code>OnlyShowIn=Unity;GNOME;</code>

to

<code>OnlyShowIn=Unity;GNOME;Pantheon;</code>

and reboot.


Also:
If you copy the file to .config/autostart/indicator-application.desktop then you shouldn't have to worry about it getting overwritten again.

How to display system tray icons in elementary OS Juno? - elementary OS Stack Exchange | https://elementaryos.stackexchange.com/
The necessary 'indicator-application' package seems to be in the repositories for Juno; all that was probably actually required is
$ sudo nano /etc/xdg/autostart/indicator-application.desktop

find the line

OnlyShowIn=Unity;GNOME;

and add Pantheon

OnlyShowIn=Unity;GNOME;Pantheon;

Doesn't work with elementaryOS Freya, due to their changing the indicator API, I guess.

I dunno WTF this works, or how anyone figured this out (setting XDG_SOMETHING_SOMETHING environment variables before and after).
