GNOME is the popular desktop environment that thrives to give Linux a modern desktop experience.
While it works for the most part some of their decisions has left the user fuming and questioning.
You cannot have icons and files on the desktop new document option has been removed from the right click context menu. In addition to that GNOME has also removed the applet indicator functionality.
You know what indicator applets are don8217t you Those little icons that let you access additional features of the given application. I have plenty of them in my Ubuntu system.
And this creates a problem specially for applications that rely completely on these applet indicators to function. Take Dropbox for example. The only way to access Dropbox settings is through the app-indicator and you won8217t find it in GNOME.
That8217s a problem but thankfully there is a workaround for that.
