    Applications not showing in panel

    Hi guys, i need a little help with something strange. A couple of days ago my Skype and Checkgmail apps won't show in the bottom panel like they usually would. They are launching i know that much because when i try to run Skype manually it tells me there's already another instance of Skype already running. I haven't made any system changes at all except for any updates that have come available automatically through the package manager.

    Can anyone help me figure out what happened and how to fix it??

    Thanks

    Sounds as though your Windows List is missing.

    Right click on Bottom panel > Add to Panel > Window List > Add

    No it's not the windows list, i already have that one. This is the apps that appear in the right hand side along with the time and date and username.

    Try the same procedure but re-add the "Notification area" to the panel. That's the applet that contains these types of programs.
