App indicators in Ubuntu Gnome 15.10

Dear All,

I have been using Ubuntu GNOME for several months back, and have been 
very satisfied with the performance and usability. I started with 15.04, 
so I was very excited to upgrade to 15.10. The 15.10 seems faster on my 
Dell laptop than 15.04, and everything is generally fine.

I have a little problem with the app indicators. I had installed 
libappindicator1 in 15.04, and it took all my icons from the system tray 
to the top bar. With 15.10, libappindicator1 seems unsupported. Instead, 
I have to work with a hidden panel in the bottom left, which comes out 
when I click on the arrow at its head. It is just too many clicks. Also 
psensor does not seem properly supported. I do not get the quick glance 
dropdown on clicking psensor icon, and have to get data from the graph.

Is there any way I can get the icons to the top bar? I tried TopIcons 
GNOME extension, but all the icons do not come to the top, as the icon 
to icon distance is too high. So any other alternatives?

Warm Regards
