Mint Update has stopped loading the notification icon at startup (Mint 10)
Firstly, hi from me, this is my first post here.
In view of not getting any help or even any constructive answers on the actual official Linux Mint forums, I thought I might try here to see if there is anyone that actually gives a damn about small bugs that occasionally pop up.
Basically, I have a nice fresh clean install of Mint 10 (32 bit, Gnome) and on the whole everything is working ok except that the Mint Update notification icon that appears in the notification area on the right hand side of the panel has stopped loading at startup. Now the actual Mint Update program is working 100% fine when manually loaded from the mint menu, it's just that the little shield shaped icon that should be appearing is very useful to see if your system is up to date without having to bother launching the program to find out (when up to date it shows the green tick symbol). It was loading fine for the first couple of days but then suddenly stopped.
If anyone has any ideas or knows if this is an official minor bug, I would be very grateful to hear from you. I know its not the end of the world but I like things to be working 100% if possible and don't want to bother doing a remastersys backup until everything is so.
Any replies much appreciated.
ps, I have tried re-installing Mint update and have made sure that I have NOT deleted the notification area by mistake.
