Make sure that you unlock the Widgets

Yes, right clicking was the ticket. That gives the
"Add to panel" option which is exactly what I wanted
Regarding the widget lock, I only see a selection to
lock the widgets, so I assumed they were unlocked.
The icons drop into the task bar now, so I think the
widgets are unlocked.
One other part of the puzzle is to change the actual
graphic shown on the icon in the taskbar. In the case
of the console terminal, I prefer to have that
displayed as an "X". By fiddling with the icon
setting I have been able to change the graphic
display, but it's been trial and error.
