View Full Version : Gnome: Accidentally deleted the system tray from my top panel

Yeah.... very stupid. Not sure why. But you know that thing on the top right of the gnome desktop that holds programs like amarok and pidgin? And gmail notifier and probably some others.

I was trying to close amarok and somehow I misclicked and deleted the panel.

In an attempt to fix it (read: replace) I installed kdocker, but when I start it, it says "System tray appears to be hidden" which leads me to believe I did not delete it, but I'll be damned if I can figure out how to magic it back on there.

Any help?

note: have already tried rebooting

Sorry, I don't get it, you say you're using Gnome but you tried to install kdocker (KDE!) If you really are using Gnome then right click on the Panel and select 'Add To Panel' and then select 'Notification Area'

oh

wow, that was quite the easy fix

I'm not sure why I used kdocker... obviously I'm not at my best today
Thanks much anyway!

It's always easy when you know how :D

You really can't delete anything from the Panel, except any application or folder icons you drag there. The system stuff is always available from the 'Add to Panel' menu.
