Chrome tray icon disappeared

I have been away for a few weeks, and today, upon return, I installed a bunch of updates. Since then, Chrome icon is no longer appearing in the tray. It is kind of a big deal form me, as I use Gtalk plugin that shows additional icons as the main communication channel for work, and now I don't see notifications and it can take hours before I open the correct tab to see new chats... Also, I noticed the chat window now has a weird blue title bar... Anyone has any ideas?

Have you tried downgrading?

Re: Chrome tray icon disappeared

Well... tried I did.
I followed the Arch wiki on downgrading an AUR package, but the md5 check kept failing. I think the installer kept downloading the latest Chrome deb.
Just for kicks, I changed the md5s in PKGBUILD and "successfully" downgraded, but Chrome kept reporting the versiion as the latest, which leads me to believe I was right in my original assumption.
I'm guessing that means I'm out of options. Right?

I'm now just trying to figure out if I should file a bug report against Chrome or tint2... Seems like Chrome as it's not only the tray icon that's broken. It's tint2 providing the systray in AB, right?

Re: Chrome tray icon disappeared

yes, tint2 provides the systray.
did a little search and found this post, check the dates ...   https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=157978
would suggest that its a recurring issue with chrome...

edit:   this might be the bug-- https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issu … ?id=377389

Re: Chrome tray icon disappeared

Nice find! Thanks a bunch!
A comment there claims it should have been fixed in chrome-dev. Will try as soon as I get a chance.
