why is the system tray in elementary Juno not like the previous version, in the previous version the system tray can display VLC, RadioTray and others? is there a way to show the system tray again?

About system tray icons. In , elementaryOS dropped the support of the old Ayatana Indicators

While the software devs implement the new way you can have them back by...

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yunnxx/elementary
$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt install indicator-application wingpanel-indicator-ayatana

then you need to edit a file (i used nano, use any editor you want - avoiding a holy war)

$ sudo nano /etc/xdg/autostart/indicator-application.desktop

find the line

OnlyShowIn=Unity;GNOME;

and add Pantheon

OnlyShowIn=Unity;GNOME;Pantheon;

that's it, just restart X and you will have the old notification area icons
