I use some programs (JDownloader and Emesene for example) which don't close, but go to the system tray when clicked on the "X" of their windows. But for some time now, they don't minimize to system tray anymore. How can I fix this?

Which version of Ubuntu are you using ? Are you sure you have a notification area applet in the panel ? –  João Pinto Jan 4 '11 at 18:40

you can use alltray application. Just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command below.

sudo apt-get install alltray

-1 alltray is a generic solution for applications which do not support minimize to tray, it is not the case of the applications experiencing the problem. –  João Pinto Jan 4 '11 at 18:41
