I installed LM13 64bit Cinnamon edition on my AMD-ATI computer on SSD disk. Installed proposed proprietary ATI drivers (not the post-release updates one but the proper one), and all works preaty good. It has some glitches and I'm reporting bugs each time the window pops-up, but all works well.
Here is the issue I can't get around and that prevents me to cross to LM13 permanent, I'm still using LM10 until bugs in LM13 are solved. My tray icons in Cinnamon bar are frozen from the point I login or start some app that uses tray icon space. Is not one app issue is almost all of them:
- pidgin icon
- skype icon
- update manager icon
- dropbox icon
- thunderbird FireTray icon
To be clear, I'll explain: All of those icons work in term of functionality, left/right mouse click all work fine, context menu text is ok, but icons themselfs do not change. Like pidgin tray icons stays 'offline' even if I go Online, Away or whatever and the other app icons behave the same. Update Manager icon stays 'Up to date' even if there is some updates, and Dropbox icon is fixed on 'Updating content' even if there is nothing to update.
On one or two occasions they seem to work for a minute or two but it never lasts, like update manager, dropbox and pidgin icon work fine and then I start Skype and all is frozen again. It makes no difference what apps are on, this is the case when no other app but Update Manager are there. Also I noticed that changing to some of cinnamon themes seems to get them refreshed and they seem to work fine for some time. Like change to ElementaryOS but if I start Skype after is fixed icons all over again.
Just want to point out that clock and Volume icon work fine, Volume icon changes on +/- volume change.
I'll be satisfied with any kind of solution here, don't mind chnaging Cinnamon theme or anything. Is really annoying not getting notices on tray when someone contacts you on skype or pidgin, and email icon not showing that new email is received.
