Package: uim-gtk3
Version: 1:1.8.6-4
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

under gnome-shell 3.8.4 the uim systray is not showing in the notification bar. Specifically, uim-toolbar-gtk3-systray is not showing up. Other systray icons (e.g. dropbox, skype, redshift, steam) show up properly. The uim systray would also show up on previous versions of gnome shell, but since other systray icons show up properly I decided to report the bug here.

What led up to the situation

  • installed package uim-gtk3 (and other uim related packages - uim is working as intended) after a clean installation of debian.

What I exactly do

  • open a terminal and execute the command uim-toolbar-gtk3-systray

The outcome of the action

  • the command executes but no systray icon appears.

Expected outcome

  • command executes, and a systray icon appears that allows controlling of the input properties.

i confirmed this issue at uim 1.8.6 vs. gnome-shell 3.8.4.
reporter says "previous versions of gnome shell" maybe 3.6.x,
but i cannot confirm and i do not have gnome-shell 3.6.x environment now.
i will try later.

What the original bug reporter wants may be GNOME 3 extension for uim (#18).

there's any way to get uim-toolbar-gtk3-systray working on the actual gnome?
What was the problem?
there's a way to bypass or solve it?
or any alternatives?


sorry for my English
