First Application Indicator on My Lucid Desktop
I did an dist-upgrade today, and saw that the first Application Indicator was installed and working.
This is the Rhythmbox indicator, and it is a nice consistent menu that gives me left click access to the key music player functions. It works like the typical Rhythmbox Notification Icon, but works consistently and predictably.
I still don't know what key combinations gets me to activate the Application Indicator Area, but I did notice that I can arrow key between Rhythmbox indicator and the Messaging Indicator, which is a major win for me, as I tend to stick with the keyboard if I can avoid using a mouse. This is also important for accessibility, as there are a large range of things that can make it difficult for a person to use a mouse.
