Bugfixes


If you experience the problem with the systray popup, try to install the libpng12, Gtk2::AppIndicator, libappindicator-dev packages with following command:

sudo apt install libappindicator-dev 

followed by

sudo cpan -i Gtk2::AppIndicator 

In Ubuntu Versions prior to 18.04 you can download the libpng12 package as follows:

sudo apt install libpng12

sudo dpkg -i libpng12-0.deb 

followed by

apt-get install -f
