I installed Hipchat on my ElementaryOS system. I am on 0.3 Freya. In the status bar is this icon:

Wingpanel Icon

Can I fix this myself or do I have to write the developer of hipchat? I would be okay if the icon will be hidden, just like this it is a bit ugly.



  1. Install https://github.com/mank319/elementaryPlus
  2. Edit hipchat4.desktop file in both places

    • /usr/share/applications
    • ~/.local/share/applications

Change Exec entry (should look like this):

Exec=env XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=Unity /opt/HipChat4/bin/HipChat4
