Description

Hi,

I upgraded my desktop to plasma 5, and the tray icon is gone. Apparently plasma dropped support for xembed so applications now need to use libappindicator

Some further information:

A simple gtk2 tray icon does not work: https://gist.github.com/pklaus/304963 . On this example no tray is shown on plasma5

But a simple appindicator does work: http://www.eurion.net/python-snippets/snippet/Create%20an%20Application%20Indicator.html (the icon has to be changed of course).

Also, I forgot to mention that notifications (ie, highlight indications) work: an OSD with the message appears. It is only the persistent tray icon that doesn't show.
