Call for quick testing on 14.04: xfce4-indicator-plugin

Dear all,

as Richard Elkins recently noted there have been problems with the indicators in 14.04, however we've prepared a fix meanwhile.
You can install the updated package that should hopefully fix things from this PPA (there are a bunch of other packages there too, just upgrade the xfce4-indicator-plugin package).

(as always, you can follow these steps to add the PPA from the terminal:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:thad-fisch/test
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install xfce4-indicator-plugin)

Then restart your session and all your indicators that were missing before (most likely -sound and -datetime, if you have it installed) should be back.

Then please report your results here by replying to this thread. Ideally you'll have a system that hasn't been tempered with config-wise. (To make sure, you can add a new user. Unless you've tempered with system-wide settings...)

Thanks in advance!
