    indicator plugin missing from panel options

    Did a fresh install of xubuntu (installed over Ubuntu) with the "--no-install-recommends" (not sure if that is relevant). Configuring my panels, I don't have the option of adding the indicator plugin. There is the "Notification Area" but no indicator plugin. the package "indicator plugin" is installed, and I have reinstalled it. Is there a way I can manually add it to the panel configs?

    Ok, pqwoerituytrueiwoq, you got me a bit further, thank you! I installed xfce4-indicator-plugin and now it shows up. However, it crashed a couple of times until I rebooted. Now it doesn't crash, but it won't allow me to hide any of the icons I don't want. I check to hide them and close the prefs, but those icons don't get removed. I have tried to mark them as all hidden by default and just show the ones I do want, but this doesn't work either... Ideas?

    I removed and reinstalled it and even tho it crashed, i am able to remove icons now... I'll leave this thread open until I'm satisfied. Thanks for the suggestion!
