Public bug reported: On other installs, this extension correctly provides a system tray space for apps to display their indicator icons. However, on a fresh install of 17.10 with gnome running from lightdm (because gdm3 fails with the current nvidia binary drivers), it doesn't appear to be active. There are background apps (like variety) which should be displayed, but no icons appear.
