 +====== Status Notifier Plugin ======
 +
 +===== About =====
 +
 +This plugin provides a panel area for status notifier items (application indicators). Applications may use these items to display their status and interact with user. This technology is a modern alternative to systray and has the [[https://​www.freedesktop.org/​wiki/​Specifications/​StatusNotifierItem/​|freedesktop.org specification]].
 +
 +===== Usage =====
 +
 +  * Compile or install xfce4-statusnotifier-plugin
 +  * Right-click the panel → Add New Items
 +  * Add the Status Notifier Plugin
 +
 +===== Screenshots =====

 +
 +===== Troubleshooting =====
 +
 +==== Plugin Doesn'​t Show Any Items ====
 +
 +There is already a running service which works with status notifier items. Most probably it's the indicator-application service which is used by xfce4-indicator-plugin. Make sure this service is not running: remove this indicator from xfce4-indicator-plugin and remove the service from autostart.
