How to get systray icons for programs. @system76 #Pop!_OS #linux #pop_os #ubuntu #Linux

I installed Pop!_OS, clean install. After that I installed some application that uses system tray. But some icons do not show up. I am running latest version and DELL XPS 13 9370.
I does not matter what extension I enable.

Fix that works

  1. Install gnome-tweaks
sudo apt-get install gnome.tweaks

2. Now install system tray extension from git hub

git clone https://github.com/phocean/TopIcons-plus.git
cd TopIcons-plus
make install

Done!

Enable the plugin in gnome-tweaks
