Hrm. Well, I accidentally deleted my top panel today. Added it again, but now I don't have the system tray, wh ere I can minimize programs and it appears in the top-right corner. And I can't find it in the "Add to Panel..." list.

It's probably really easy to fix, I'm just a 'Nix Newb and don't know where things are. :P Any help?

I think you are looking for the "Notification Area". Try adding that to the panel.

Add Indicator Applet Session.

Don't use old instructions with new versions of Ubuntu.

You should use the Indicator Applet, not the Notification Area.

Wow, that helped me a lot. I was trying to re-organize things in my panel, so I created a new one, and then deleted the old one and voila! System tray was gone and a I got a bunch of errors. This fixed it. Thank you!!! :p;)
