Finally, if I do have the correct packages, how can I help to find the
reason behind the disappearing applet?
The disappearing applet is expected behavior right now, and we'll be
improving it. It's startling to see the applet go away shortly after
startup, and we've got a design to try and make it more obvious to the
user what is happening so that you can feel confident that the system is
working properly rather than wondering if it crashed. Many of the beta
testers are reporting that the applet crashed, when really it only hid
itself because it was idle.
Just to be clear, I experienced a crash. The crash application started
by itself and brought me to the bug tracking website.
You can have a look at this page to see the new design for using
notifications and when the icon will show and hide itself:
