This is what I get when I try to start an awn-notification-area applet in Unity:

There is already another notification area running on this screen! Please remove the existing notification area and then restart the applet.

So which process should be killed?

Sorry, I somehow missed Natty mentions. – Oxwivi Apr 5 '11 at 12:43

The notification area (PanelTray) is part of the panel, so I'm afraid this currently won't work in Natty.

@user13642, if you're going to use AWN, then go with classic desktop and disable Unity plugin in ccsm. – Oxwivi Apr 5 '11 at 12:47
