Cannot find show desktop icon for GNOME


Hi,

I am using GNOME and I want to turn on the "Show desktop" icon on my task bar.
I could not find an applet that is called "Show Desktop" does anyone how I can get the "Show Desktop" to appear ?

Thanks
Ministre

Try right-clicking on the panel
Add to Panel -> Utility -> Show Desktop Button

Yeah I tried that but I am not able to see the "Show Desktop" button.
I think that the "Show DeskTop" button is an applet right ?
Perhaps I do not have the applet installed. Does anyone know where I can get that applet and how to install it to get GNOME to use it ?
