I just installed this plugin: http://nevitus.com/2013/05/unity-integration-for-pidgin/ If you just want the plugin, scroll all the way down. It integrates perfectly with the Unity desktop.
I had same issue regarding "no system tray found" until I uninstalled Wine (was running the Star Trek Armada 2 demo hehe). Then problem disappeared.
I've installed cairo-dock (sudo apt-get install cairo-dock). It has an add-in called "Notification Area Old" which seems to work fairly well.
