Ubuntu 17.10 Whatpulse No System Tray

As I was trying to install WP on ubuntu 17.10, the installation program pops out a window saying that there is no system tray detected. Any idea on how to fix this problem and what is causing this?

Also I have looked through the forum and all I can find are people asking whether it is possible to run WP on a linux box without GUI, but I am currently sitting in front of the box that I am using and have GUI installed.

P.S. the ubuntu is running on surface book, can this cause any problem?

RE: Ubuntu 17.10 Whatpulse No System Tray
I had the same issue trying to run WhatPulse on a machine with Fedora 27 installed. Does Ubuntu 17.10 use Wayland as the default display server? I believe Fedora does, and I think that's why WhatPulse can't find the system tray there. (Because it's coded for how X11 works.)
