Hi and thanx for the replay. I know not all startup applications show on the gnome panel but some are supposed to by default, for example volume control, network, mintupdate. And they do when i start the programs. Ive used Mint for a long time but just installed mint 9. Those icons were there at startup on every other mint 9 install ive seen and they are supposed show up there when they get autostarted. Another one is dropbox, it is marked to startup at boot, but the icon doesnt show unless i manually start it. I have mint 9 on another computer where i do not have this problem.
And by the way, when i run:
$sudo killall nm-applet
it says no process is running,
just starts the applet for the session and does not come back when i reeboot.
Im starting to think I have to reinstall, which is a shame as i have used the last few days to set up my system.
