If the applet you want isnt in the list on option 1 "Add to panel" then you might have to install it using Synaptic Package Manager

System - Administration - Synaptic

shailesh (shaileshagarwal1) said : #8

what are names of these applet given in synaptic?

What do you mean? Applets or the icons in the notification area? Try "Add Applet" then choose notification area ...

Tom (tom6) said : #10

Synaptic has a search button that searches through description as well as titles so it allows me to be a lot more vague :) Try using the search button and search for "battery applet" and stuff like that. Hopefully you'll find it and be able to install/reinstall it.

Good luck and regards from
Tom :)

I use those applets in redhat5 (GNOME) and ubuntu8.04 and 9.04, but i hadn't to install any package...

Tom (tom6) said : #12

It might be worth reinstalling the entire "gnome-desktop" to see if that brings the missing stuff back. Of course if you are using Kubuntu then that would be the "kde-desktop" instead ;) But doing either sounds a bit harsh.

Good luck and regards from
Tom :)

Can you help with this problem?
