Re: How to add items to xfce panel in line command

xfce4-panel --add <PLUGIN>

...where <PLUGIN> is the name of the plugin. In your example above, either ""battery" "clock" or "systray". If you have more than one panel, you will be prompted for the panel to use.

It doesn't look like you can. If you have more than one panel, you will be prompted via the dialog to select a panel.

Re: How to add items to xfce panel in line command

hi, how to add the notification area?
none of these work. No error, but i don't see anything on the panel.

guest@porteus:~$ /usr/lib/xfce4/panel/wrapper-1.0 /usr/lib/xfce4/panel/plugins/libsystray.so 19 14715359 systray Notification Area Area where notification icons appear
guest@porteus:~$ xfce4-panel --add "Notification Area"
guest@porteus:~$ xfce4-panel --add notificationarea
guest@porteus:~$ xfce4-panel --add Notification Area
guest@porteus:~$ xfce4-panel --add NotificationArea

johnywhy, Notification Area is in fact "systray", so try this:

xfce4-panel --add systray

Awesome, Spass!

Is there any command to remove systray?

THX

Update:
To answer my own question, i think these are clues. Ami on the right track?

Hopefully i can remove simply knowing the name of the panel (panel 1?) and the name of the item (systray)

if you want to delete a property, and all properties beneath it, then you can add the “--recursive” option to the command:
$ xfconf-query --channel 'xfce4-panel' --property '/panels/panel-3' --reset --recursive
https://forum.xfce.org/viewtopic.php?id=8619

-------

Reset (and remove) property /test1 in the channel test (this preserves any properties under /test1, for example /test1/test):
xfconf-query -c test -p /test1 -r

Reset (and remove) property /test1 in the channel test and all properties under it:
xfconf-query -c test -p /test1 -r -R
