Anyone else lose app indicator icons on KDE after this update? They were working before I updated, and now they are not. I no longer have a Telegram system tray icon, nor do I have one for google messages. Google messages is the most annoying, because there’s no way to disable it, and the program keeps running in the background when closed, so I have to kill it via system monitor every time I wake from sleep, in order to get it to connect again.
If you have experienced this and found a fix, please let me know! libappindicator-gtk2 and 3 are both installed and up to date.
And it is a really beautiful icon set. Are you on KDE Plasma, if so, there were updates to that set. Those icon updates need to be done manually, which is bit hidden, in System Settings < Appearance < Icons < Get New Icons - then select Show Only Updateable Entries and hit the Update button … or in Discover which is another story…
Just my idea to that issue. Maybe try switching to the default Breeze and back or another one. Gruvbox is the same as Papirus with a different color scheme. But then I don’t know what DE you’re on.
Desktop Theme sets the (majority) of the icons on your taskbar.
Use breeze - you get mainly breeze icons up there regardless of your icon theme.
(this may be changing in upcoming Plasma)
(( I have Papirus icons there . because I use matchama theme which uses them. ))
((( I plan on making and sharing a minimal desktop theme that will provide Papirus icons while respecting the color scheme … stay tuned )))
I’ve been somewhat keeping up with the changes in Plasma 6 and so far I don’t think any will negatively affect me. However, I’ve always run a mix of themes. For example, right now I am running Materia Blur as my plasma style, papirus for icons, Helium color scheme, and Klassy app style and window decorations. Hopefully I will be able to keep this look on Plasma 6 rather than needing to apply a global theme.
I’ve got everything just the way I like it, including custom keyboard shortcuts and would hate to have to adapt anything.
