This question already has an answer here:
First time elementary OS user, long time Ubuntu (Gnome) user.
Installed Freya today and I have a couple of issues with indicators. First, Dropbox indicator isn't showing (found a post that should fix that, waiting for long-running git checkout so I an log out and test it).
I have an indicator that was written by my employer that shows me my security status and allows me to view a report. It works in ubuntu (and Gnome-Shell, via the notification tray) but can't find it in Elementary.
I also have Symantec Antivirus installed and its indicator shows up in the dock as a running application, which is annoying.
How can these issues be fixed? In Gnome-Shell there's an extension that adds what they call "legacy" indicator to the Gnome-Shell indicators. Is there something similar in Elementary OS?
