Continuing this question here since it has veered off from the original thread. Global menu is getting cut out
I may have misunderstood @fossfreedom, but were you saying that I can make use of the App Indicator without installing into the plugin extension directory?
If the applet is an app indicator then it will auto appear after running … e.g. if set to autostart
That line specifically pops out at me, because while I based my work on an actual Budgie Applet that installs globally, which @fossfreedom indicates can also be installed locally here https://askubuntu.com/questions/886327/how-do-i-write-an-indicator-for-budgie-desktop, I guess I am wondering if I can throw an app or minimize something up in the top right corner alongside other applications that are actual Applets?
I already have the Budgie Applet written and working, but it would be nicer to skip the manual UI install step imo. On a lesser important note… is there a way to change the button text to dark black? I have been going through gtk+ python documentation but haven’t found a way to resolve it, at least nothing that worked for me.
I think I had tried something like this as a test and it did not work, among other attempts.
