[Bug 527267] Re: Application Indicators too wide


As a workaround you can remove this applet indicator and almost all icons from it are able to stand up by themselves in the old tray, except for the envelope one and the volume indicator. But you can grab the pulseaudio-mixer-applet to replace the volume icon.
So you can get all your space back and still see batery, network, and so on...

It is ironic that they stated the new design is to save more space, but
once removed and went back to the old behavior i have MORE space than
with the new applet... meaning the purpose failed to be accomplished at
least for some users like me, using Ubuntu on a netbook.

Bug description:
the Application Indicators applet is wider than the regular systray.

3 Indicators icons are slightly bigger than 4 tray icons, incl. the left part.
See the screenshot. The two highlighted boxes are ~100 pixels wide.

With more applications moving to the app indicator, it will result in less usable space in the panel, which in my case is already pretty full.
