mdh34/elementary-indicators: An unofficial guide to restore indicator functionality on elementary OS |
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 (
- and follow the instructions from 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>
<code class="language-ini">OnlyShowIn=Unity;GNOME;</code>
<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.

CAPS lock indicator ruining my gaming!!!
If Bluetooth software is enabled:

1. Go to Start - Run - Regedit
2. Next move to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE / SOFTWARE / Widcomm / BTConfig / General
3. Locate "KeyIndication" and change value from 1 to 0 and reboot Your system

Other way is to uninstall Bluetooth software and disable bluetooth adapter inside bios so it stops showing unknown device in Device Manager.

elementary OS Snippets: Missing Dropbox Indicator Icon []
Setting XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP *is* the solution, but putting that in .profile, .xsessionrc, or .xinitrc doesn't permanently set it for the entire desktop session. The solution here ( - dead link) modifies 'dropboxd' directly.

This may need to be done over again after a Dropbox update.
