I want to add Hamster applet to my Ubuntu 11.04 installation, I am not able to right click panel and add applet to it.
Please let me know the exact method.
Sorry, But I am novice to linux.
Unity Panel (Unity is new interface for Ubuntu 11.04 with new top panel) doesn't support applets for GNOME Panel.
You can use Hamster Indicator (package
More information here:
There is a lot of indicators, many of them have same funtionality as applets for GNOME Panel in ubuntu 10.10 and older.
List of indicators -- List of Application indicators

Good news: Hamster-indicator is coming to Precise, so you won't need to use the PPA. Thanks to Alberto, bojo42, and Jamie!
