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.

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

  • Thats what i thought. Thanks for confirming it though.

    @user13642, if you're going to use AWN, then go with classic desktop and disable Unity plugin in ccsm.
