The latest stable release of Spotify for Linux has a missing system tray icon. We show you how to add a Unity quicklist to control playback.
Remember that Unity Quicklist window switching patch we mentioned at the end of January? It arrived as default in Ubuntu 13.04 earlier today.
Ubuntu 12.04 has been adding much needed functionality to many of its default apps though new ‘quicklists’.
Last week saw the first Linux release of 'To Do' application Wunderlist.

With Ubuntu Unity-specific support being lavished upon Chromium and Firefox 4 it wasn't going to be long before Opera - the oft overlooked web browser which a healthy 5% of OMG! readers use - received some due love and attention. Opera user/fan/developer Kyle Baker - whose Opera themes and tips we've featured before - has written a 'Unity script' for the browser that adds in some Unity specific love including a tab count to the Launcher icon, right-click quicklists to your Opera speed dial entries and support for Unity's "urgency" alerts.
Adding even more reason for switching to Chromium in Ubuntu, the latest Daily build of the browser has added a Unity Quicklist to the launcher icon, courtesy of Fabien Tassin.
Over the last few weeks we've shown you how to add Unity Quicklists to Banshee, the Unity Home Launcher and even web-browser Opera. Well folks - here are even more!
OMG! reader Nico, who earlier this week showed us how to add an unread message count to Pidgin on the Unity Launcher, mailed in a pre-made Banshee Quicklist for Ubuntu 11.04. Once installed a wide selection of handy actions are no-more than a right-click away...
The 'home' folder is put in easy reach in Ubuntu 11.04 - slap bang at the top of the Unity launcher. Rather than replacing the "Places" menu of pre-Ubuntu 11.04, the launcher is now just a launcher: doing nothing more, nothing less. We can improve that, though...
Kyle Baker recently posted a short guide on adding Quicklist options to Opera's launcher in Unity, and whilst his guide relates to Opera, the Unity developers have made it an easy enough 'hack' to apply to a variety of applications.
