What is the "notification area"? I don't know where that is!

The panel plugin is what I use to have working. I can't get that puppy
to show it's face - no way; no how! :)

I just looked at Synaptic Package Manager. I have:

xfce4-notes-plugin 1.7.6-1build1
xfce4-notes 1.7.6-1build1

Seems like everything that should be there, is! This is no big deal
for me though, so please don't waste your time. I can simply install
another notes app if need be. I did like xfce4-notes though! :) Much
obliged for your time!
