Description Jetchko Jekov 2017-10-12 07:57:00 UTC
Description of problem:
There is no icon showing in system tray under kde plasma even if you enable it in preferences.
The problem is that virt-manager uses AppIndicator3.IndicatorCategory.OTHER which is wrong(?). At least in spec under this value is written " ... please don’t use unless you really need it."
Maybe better category will be APPLICATION_STATUS.

The real reason is that there is a misalignment between indicator category enum definition in Appindicator3 and KNotifications but maybe thats reason for another bug.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 1.4.3

Thanks for the report, I fixed this a while ago but forgot to close it:

    systray: Use APPLICATION_STATUS for appindicator
    Not OTHER, as the reporter points out this shouldn't be used, and
    causes issues on KDE
