Huh, okay. Then...why is it needed? I'll explain what I did that
(apparently) caused the need for this assembly:

My program, on Windows, makes use of a trayicon. I tried to run the
program on Ubuntu 13.04 and Ubuntu 13.04 Gnome Edition, but my trayicon
wasn't appearing. (note that at that point, the assembly wasn't needed)

I searched around and found out that I'd have to use an AppIndicator,
provided by libappindicator0.1-cil.

I implemented it, compiled my program (which compiled successfully) and
tried to start it. And at that point I got that error about needing that

Could it be a property I've to set somewhere?
