    No System Tray Detected on this system

    The first time booting after upgrading to 9.04 I get this message:

    I don't have any idea what this is? Any help would be great.
    Thanks

    The problem is when I right-click on the panel, there is no System tray to select in the "Add to Panel".

    Re: No System Tray Detected on this system

    Every time I restart my system I still keep getting this same error. Am I missing something from the upgrade to 9.04? Any help out here?
    Thanks

    You are right. When I Right-click on the panel and do an add to panel the option System tray is not there.
    I keep getting this error every time I start the laptop and I don't know how to get rid of it.

    Re: (Solved) No System Tray Detected on this system

    We can mark this one solved. How I finial got rid of this error message was by going to Synaptic, click the Status bar on the left, in the windows above, click Not Installed (residual or config) and mark all for complete removal. By doing some cleaning up it got rid of it.
