  budgie-desktop needs to display the nm-applet icon in the panel

Status in budgie-desktop package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  As the debian maintainer of budgie-desktop I have recently pushed
  v10.2.9-2 and this has been sync'd via Debian.

  The nm-applet no longer displays in the panel.  This is because Ubuntu
  has a specific patch to nm-applet that assumes app-indicators is the
  default display mechanism not the X11 tray icon.

  Thus Ubuntu Budgie needs a specific ubuntu only patch to run nm-applet
  with the parameter --no-indicator

  Note - whilst we do support appindicators - our appindicator
  deliberately hides nm-applet because we follow upstream plans which
  include a separate network-manager applet built specifically for
  budgie-desktop.  Thus we don't want future complications of both the
  app-indicator and the separate applet both displaying the same info.

  Additionally - those that install budgie-desktop without the
  appindicator package will also need to see and use the nm-applet
