Update: There is a way to get AllTray to work properly with Unity. Open a terminal, run the following command, and then logout and back in again; AllTray should then work.

$ gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Panel systray-whitelist "['all']"

This will make it possible for you to continue to use AllTray under Unity without having to switch to the Ubuntu Classic mode if you do not want to.

Can you help with this problem?
