I've just started using Awesome WM, but I miss a lot of stuff from the Unity panel: the logout buttons, the message menu, etc. Is there a way to get these into the Awesome WM panel?

Is is specifically the Unity indicators you want, or are similar replacements suitable? – Chan-Ho Suh Mar 18 '12 at 18:01

As far as i know, its not possible to add the actual indicators from Unity into Awesome's panel, but you can add things to Awesome's panel by configuring its text based config file. the Awesome wiki has more details about this:

Basically you can add text, widgets and such, but not indicators.
