I had put a wishlist bug for  a new release of guake i.e. guake 3.4.0
which the maintainer amazingly promptly pushed out .


also on the guake term -

$ guake --version
Guake Terminal: 3.4.0
VTE: 0.54.1
VTE runtime: 0.54.1
Gtk: 3.24.1

As can be seen in the screenshot guake seems messed up and variety
icon is nowhere to be seen/found.

Just to check I also did a -

$ ps aux | grep variety
shirish   1315  0.6  1.5 1749052 122272 ?      Sl   11:15   0:03
/usr/bin/python3 /usr/bin/variety

Also running variety on guake  shows me this -

$ variety
Variety is already running. Sending the command to the running instance.

I looked at the options and did re-check if I had messed up the
indicator icon by any chance, i.e. closed it or something but no,
everything appears as configured1.

It just doesn't come up in the notification area :(

I do not know whether I should file a separate issue for variety or
it's do with guake ?
