I installed indicator-synapse before adding the unstable repository and it didn't install the search app, it installed something about the keyboard instead. Then I added the unstable repo and installed synapse again and the search app is there but I can't remove the keyboard thing. Could you help me removing it?

it's the little [Es] icon which appeared after I installed indicator-synapse without the unstable repo

The [Es] icon

Ok, I solved it!

  • install DConf-Tools sudo apt-get install dconf-tools
  • browse: com > canonical > indicator > keyboard and uncheck "visible"
  • For the record, this doesn't work anymore (I'm on 5.1 "Hera"), but the answer from this question does.
