the new version dont work also :(
Compass starts with the info-window about Compass abb in menu bar only and then nothing; no icon on the menu bar.

No ican on the bar; also problems has Shutter (; but as example on Caffeine ( works fine; maybe this helps?


Now i have found an solution.
Unity has whitelist for the menu bar icons.

the follow solution works fine

  • install configuratuin editor: sudo apt-get install dconf-tools
  • now start this editor: dconf-editor
  • got to: desktop --> unity --> panel
  • remove all entries to ['all']or create an whitelist with your apps; example: ['JavaEmbeddedFrame', 'Wine', 'Skype', 'hp-systray', 'scp-dbus-service']
  • restart unity: unity --replace and check, if works or restart your client
