I have been fighting with checkgmail and pidgin, because after a while their tray icons disappear in unity. Also the black message boxes don't show up with pidgin (e.g. when someone writes a message to me), when the task tray icons are not visible. Weirdly enough, when I switch between workspaces, the icons are visible during the switching.
I uninstalled indicator-messages because I'd rather have separate icons for my programs. The problem I have now is that pidgin icon won't show up (while others do, like empathy, skype and so on). Or to be more precise, it shows up but is transparent.
If you have any idea about how to fix that, it's appreciated. I tried to relaunch pidgin once or twice but it doesn't change anything.
I've installed Ubuntu 12.04 on my dekstop and instead of Unity I am using gnome like in older versions. Everything is working fine except that some programs that are supposed to show it's icons in tray (Dropbox, Pidgin) are not there.
