The package is compiled without "appindicator". As a result, you are unable to use the "tray icon" or start it minimized to the notification are.

Additional info:

* package version(s):

I came across this in Manjaro 19 which has version:
remmina 1:1.3.10-1

It is still present (checked SVN) in Arch in latest version:
remmina 1:1.4.1-1

* config and/or log files etc. :

When using the app from the GUI you can tell it is not working because of the absence of the icon in the notification area.

* link to upstream bug report, if any

Came across this myself. Searching in Manjaro forums I quickly found:

I could not find a bug report for the package in Arch so I am creating this one.

Steps to reproduce:

The best way to replicate and have evidence of it happening is to run:

[user@workstation ~]$ remmina -i
StatusNotifier/Appindicator support: your desktop does support it, but you did not compile remmina with cmake’s -DWITH_APPINDICATOR=on

Steps to fix:

Line 38 of the PKGBUILD file above should be changed to ON.
This task depends upon
