gnome-shell-extensions wasn't installed, but since it doesn't contain this extension and isn't mandated by ubuntu-desktop, it didn't seem important. in any case, I installed it, logged out and back in, and no change, still broken.
There are a ton of warnings about extensions in journalctl -b, and the following look pertinent, but don't tell me what the issue is: Mar 07 00:09:27 viper indicator-appli: Name Lost Mar 07 00:09:30 viper indicator-sound: volume-control-pulse.vala:735: unable to get pulse unix socket: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.PulseAudio1 was not provided by any .service files Mar 07 00:09:30 viper indicator-keyboard-service: Unable to init server: Could not connect: Connection refused Mar 07 00:09:30 viper indicator-keybo: gtk_icon_theme_get_for_screen: assertion 'GDK_IS_SCREEN (screen)' failed There's nothing when searching for extensions that mentions appindicator though. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Bugs, which is subscribed to Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1753899 Title: extension doesn't work, no app icons appear in top bar To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-shell-extension-appindicator/+bug/1753899/+subscriptions -- ubuntu-bugs mailing list email@example.com https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-bugs
