Additional info:
* package version: 1.2.4-1
* link to upstream bug report:

Steps to reproduce:

With riot-desktop installed (version 1.2.3), do a system update with `pacman -Syu`. This will update to riot-desktop 1.2.4-1. With that update, the icon of Riot is not visible in the taskbar. In the prior version the Riot systray icon was visible, the same size as the other icons, and showed an unread message count. In 1.2.4, the icon is an electron icon with a tiny, tiny Riot icon inside it, and there is no message count.

According to, a user had to "install libappindicator-sharp and libappindicator-gtk3 to get the tray icon to work again."

Another user says, "Great! Just installing libappindicator-gtk3 is enough for me. This should probably be added as a dependency for the package or at least be documented somewhere in this repo for people to find."

Apparently at least one dependencies for the riot-desktop package on Arch is missing.

This task depends upon
