System tray [Solved]

Postby mojozoox » Fri Apr 18, 2008 6:29

I have accidentally closed the system tray that contained many icons on the right corner of the top panel on the default sabayan desktop. Now im do not know where to find it and restore it to normalcy.

It contained volume control, localization, bluetooth, wifi apart from other things.

Pls help!

Just so you know, it's usually referred to as a 'panel' in Linux, e.g., 'top Panel' at... the top of the screen, and 'main Panel' (the one at the bottom of the screen in SL's case). If I understand you correctly, you've lost the entire top Panel? Try the configuration controls: K Menu > Control Centre > Desktop > Panels

No Fitz looks like he just removed the systray from the top panel,

all he needs to do is right click on the top panel ---> choose add applet ----> click on the systray applet.

Done. Couldn't be easier.

Ah. My bad. (Mind you, on my PC there is nothing called systray if I right-click on the top Panel and select Add Applet to Panel...)

that's probably because you already have the systray applet installed on the panel. It doesn't allow you to add it twice. :wink:
