testing out gnome to see if it may be better for me. I am used to using Unity on 13.04 by now but I tried to install gnome and get used to that and see how it goes.

I am trying to get notification items, like Pidgin, Rhythmbox, keepass2, ect, to the notifications area like in Unity. but I only see settings, battery, wifi, bluetooth, and audio. how do I get my the others to start there.

Rhythmbox doesn't put an icon in the Notification Area, instead it puts the icon in the Indicator Applet, so add that to your panel:

Right-click on an empty space in the panel, select 'Add to panel...', and drag the Indicator Applet to your panel.

I have no right click option, alt-rightclick, super-alt-right, ctrl, nothing, tried multiple keystroke combos according to things I found on google. gnome-shell 3.8.3 – Drew S Oct 18 '13 at 22:56
