Did the sound-indicator appear yet - assuming a reboot in the meantime. 
I've personally had no issues with it - I was using the previous 
instructions (saucy) and had it constantly. Lost it on the sudo make 
uninstalls - which was good - the one time I was expecting to lose it, 
then it reappeared after following the new instructions.

You did I assume install it?

As far as Extras goes - I rarely bother enabling it for at least the 
first few months. Though there's nothing in there I particularly need or
