    Re: Gnome 3 Remove Accessibility Icon From... task tray thing

    The ibus icon turns out to have a preferences dialog. Unclick the box that says something like "show in the tray" and it's gone.

    Do note that mucking around with these files are just hacks and will get overwritten everytime there is a GNOME Shell update. Probably extensions are the better way to do it
    Here is such an extension. Put the two files in ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/noa11y@example.com/
    Code:
    $ cat metadata.json
    {
       "shell-version": ["3.0"],
       "uuid": "noa11y@example.com",
       "name": "noa11y",
       "description": "Remove a11y icon/menu from panel"
    }
    
    $ cat extension.js
    const Panel = imports.ui.panel;
    
    function main() {
        
       Panel.STANDARD_TRAY_ICON_SHELL_IMPLEMENTATION['a11y'] = '';
    }
    Note - no stylesheet.css is required.

    Just noticed this comment, and while it will probably work for me, it's also a bit hackish in that the bluetooth icon should just remember how it is set, just like wireless.

    Brilliant. Thanks for that. Perhaps you could upload it to the git repo of extensions on gnome.org?

    The .local/share/gnome-shell/extensions directory is empty on this machine. I'm a touch confused, where do I copy them to?

    Create a directory called noally@example.com under ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/

    cd to the new directory.
    create the metadate.json file
    create the extension.js file
    restart the GNOME shell using Alt-F2 r .

    Alternatively, if you trust content form my website, go to http://fpmurphy.com/public and download noally.tar.gz. Install it in ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions and unpack the tarball. Then restart your GNOME Shell.

    The tarball did it, I must not have copied the files correctly into gedit yesterday. Thank you.
