Tray icon is missing in GNOME

    In the GNOME desktop environment version 40, tray icons have been mostly removed and the tray icon for the IVPN App does not appear by default. The IVPN App’s tray icon can be restored by installing two packages using the command line via Terminal:

    $ sudo dnf install gnome-extensions-app gnome-shell-extension-appindicator

    After installing, launch the Extensions application and toggle the KStatusNotifierItem switch to on. You may have to log out from the GNOME desktop, then log back in for the Extesions application to update.
