I am using linux mint 15, 64-bit, cinnamon. The root partition was formatted before installation, but I initially used an existing home folder (from mint 13). However, the behaviour persists in a new account. The same icons are missing in cinnamon, KDE and XFCE (which is why I posted this here, there is no general desktop forum to post this). I also tested with the live CD, and the icons are missing there as well.
Initially system tray icons do move, and there seems to be an attempt to render the icon, however, only a black bar is included for less than 50th of a second (see attachment for screenshot).
Searches resulted in several articles about completely missing system trays and some patched issues from older distros. It also resulted in this possibly relevant old thread: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=109&t=112348, this unfortunately did not offer a solution.
I really hope someone can help me fix this, the missing media player icons are not really a problem, but liferea becomes much less useful without a tray icon.
To fix this I tried:
- -changing the desktop theme
-using a different desktop manager
-using a new user
-reinstalling affected programs
- -system tray site:linuxmint.com
-linux mint 15 system tray
-linux mint 15 system tray incomplete
-linux mint 15 icons missing
-linux mint 15 notification area icons missing
-linux mint 15 system tray icons missing
(forum search ignored tray, which complicated a proper search)
