Been wondering how to move message tray to top panel in Gnome Shell?
Install Gnome Shell extension called gnome-shell-classic-systray from webup8 Gnome 3 PPA, this extension when activated will move icons in bottom Message Tray to top panel just like classic Gnome was, like screenshot below.
As you can see Shutter, Vidalia and Bluetooth icons are located on top panel. They used to reside in the bottom Message Tray.
Install gnome-shell-classic-systray in Ubuntu 11.10 :
Open Terminal and type :
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/gnome3 sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install gnome-shell-classic-tray
Restart Gnome Shell, either by Login Out or Press Alt+F2 and type r
And then activate it via Advanced Settings (you must install gnome-tweak-tool first)
