In my previous post, I have
described why I have installed XFCE alongside my daily driver, which
currently is Gnome Shell. XFCE required me to install and run
blueman-aplet during startup. Gnome Shell does not need these
packages. Network and Bluetooth functionality is included.
The problem is that when
blueman-applet is present within Gnome Shell and
KStatusNotifierItem/AppIndicator Support is enabled, Bluetooth icon
appears in the tray, which is undesirable.
To hide the Bluetooth icon from the tray, first copy the config file:
cp /etc/xdg/autostart/blueman.desktop ~/.config/autostart
into that file. Note
that the setting appear to be case-sensitive, so make sure that the
spelling is right.
