Fedora 31 tray icon no longer available

Re: Fedora 31 tray icon no longer available

I'm not sure what I did but this morning the icon has appeared when I booted up.  Thanks for all the assistance.  Wish I could say what I did that corrected the problem.

Seems you haven't been restarted your graphical shell, so new plugins haven't got in effect (just logout/login were enough). That's why the new plugins got in effect after restart.

Oh, I had restarted the system several times yesterday but it didn't show up until this morning.  I'm just glad I have it back.  Now if I can get some of my other applications to work properly with Fedora 31 I'll be happy.  LOL  Again, thanks for all your help.  спасибо

I don't believe it.  It's gone again this morning.

Hi @psummitt,

Did you install TopIcon? If not, try it. Also make sure the extensions are enabled!

I found a solid solution linked below. Basic problem, some old Gnome extensions dont work with Wayland.

Which is the window manager in gnome 3.

^^ Installing the above solves the problem
