Hello
I'm using Gnome Classic in Ubuntu 12.04, and I haven't indicator applet for steam application.
Anyone know how to fix it?

there doesn't appear to be an indicator applet yet, seeing as the close button minimizes the window.

There's been a thread or two on this already. The problem is that Steam currently uses something a bit Unity-specific rather than systray. I think it has worked for a few people with other DE's, but they're the exception.

Steam depends on an i386 libappindicator1 so(which is not multiarch on debian system, that why it is left out on the Depends list to allow amd64 installs) for Systray support

*Looks up libappindicator*
"Library to allow applications to export a menu into the Unity Menu bar"

=\

the library have a fallback to plain systray
packages.debian.org/sid/libappindicator1
"A library to allow applications to export a
menu into the panel. Based on KSNI it also
works in KDE and will fallback to generic
Systray support if none of those are
available."

I would have to install it from the Arch User Repository, just to get a minor convenience for a single non-essential program. Bugger that for a lark.
