That post tells you how to create new shortcuts on your panel, not how to troubleshoot blank shortcuts, which is what the poster is asking about. AnEgle, try right-clicking on one of those empty spots and selecting Properties; do you get the properties of the launcher or those of the panel itself?

Be cause I have no problems with an application launcher and I know how to create shortcut there and on the desktop. I care only about tray icon. In "Changes in GNOME 3.16" look at third picture. What kind of properties must be there?

Sometimes, just checking the Properties will make the icon show up. At worst, nothing happens.

Sounds like an ancient magic. However I tried it. Nothing happens.

I guess this problem occurred due missing some library which using by qt for show notification icons. But I don't know what exactly library is missing.

Actually, the tray icon for orage on my desktop vanishes sometimes. Right-clicking on the space it should be in lets me bring up the properties, showing that there's something there, even if I can't see it. Toggling the dynamic icon off and back on brings it back without needing to close and restart the program. I figured that it was worth trying in your case, but luck wasn't with us.
