I distinctly remember that when using ssh with key authentication a key-shaped notification icon used to appear on the panel once I had unlocked the key with its passphrase.
Recently I noticed this icon is no longer shown. Does anyone know how to get it back?
Btw. this happens even with a fresh user profile.
Edit: then again, maybe I mis-remember this. I just tried a fresh 16.04.1 and even 16.04 install in a VM and the icon does not appear there either (not installed any updates, just ran
sudo apt install ssh. Maybe it’s not related to ssh or gnome-keyring after all…
If anyone knows what other application might put a white key icon in the notification area, I’m all ears.
