[ubuntu] Checkgmail and pidgin tray icons invisible in Unity

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hey 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. systray-whitelist is set to "['all']", so it shouldn't be a problem. the icons work just fine in the fallback session of gnome. I am using Ubuntu 11.10 Anyone else experiences anything similar? (Hardware)
