I'm really tired; I can't think of words right now, which is why I said "stick it" on the "menu bar" despite that I know there's more accurate wording. But hopefully you know what I mean.

I downloaded TextAdept, a simple text editor program, and I want to stick in on the bar, but when I drag the icon over it just bounces back.

I'm new to Ubuntu, what do I do?

ok - please clarify which very of ubuntu you are using as well as the desktop environment - e.g. 11.10? Unity/Gnome-Shell? If you are talking about Unity - are you referring to the panel at the top of the screen or the launcher down the left-hand side of the screen? – fossfreedom Apr 18 '12 at 14:14
Launcher along the left side. Gnome. – Aerovistae Apr 18 '12 at 14:51
@Aerovistae - please let us know (edit your question) with what you have tried from this Q&A. Thanks.… – fossfreedom Apr 18 '12 at 15:59
