I have no taskbar...view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – So, I've just installed Xfce4 and instead of choosing a "default panel" to begin with, I've accidentally chosen a blank panel. So, I added some things that I want on my panel (app menu, date/time, and some buttons), but I don't have a taskbar. There seems to be no way to add the taskbar as an item to the panel. So, when I open a window and minimize it, it disappears. (Hardware)

http://unix.stackexchange.com – How to reproduce: ssh -X user@host firefox (or some other X application). Maximise the window. Close the application. Open the application in Awesome WM (tried only locally, but should also work remotely). Result: The window is still maximised. Since I never use the maximise functionality in Awesome, and often use it in other window managers, I'd like to unset the maximisation whenever I open (HowTos)
