I need to add the System Monitor applet to the Gnome Panel in Ubuntu Netbook Edition. My setup is as following: 10.10 (upgraded from 10.04) with Netbook Edition interface installed instead of Unity.
I've tried the method of symlinking Netbook Edition interface so that it would start in the Gnome session mode but the panel was not customizable anyway. Seems that the panel is more locked in 10.10 than in 10.04.
I suppose that the panel still keeps its applet configuration somewhere, either in config files or in gnome-config. So I think that it's possible to add an applet by editing the config. Does anybody know of files, commands and configuration keys that should be changed to add an applet? Or can I launch an applet by just running the program that renders it?
