Nowadays almost every applications has an app indicator. Why GAJ shouldn’t have it?
Well, i’ve answered to that question and today i’ve pushed to trunk this new feature hoping to do a good thing for all GAJ/Zeitgeist users.
Obviously it’s possible to disable the app indicator and in fact by default it’s disabled. You can enabled it in the preferences dialog.
But wait app indicators work only for Ubuntu! And pure Gnome users that don’t have libappindicator?
Relax, dude! If GAJ runs in a pure Gnome environment, instead of the app indicator a simple Gnome tray-icon is showed!
As always i post a screencast of the feature. Here you are:
At the moment with the app indicator you can only show/hide GAJ (and close it): in my humble opinion this is better than open and close every time GAJ because with the indicator the application is more responsive and “near a mouse click”. 🙂
Obviously comments and suggestion for improving the App indicator are welcome.
