When I'm starting to record in kazam it's hidden. When I was on Ubuntu i had it in the tray, but now it's hidden in an unknown (for me) place.

How can I display it in the tray?

I tried the answers to this question and this one but they didn't help.

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


and add Pantheon


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