New to i3 and have loaded it up but I cannot see any system tray icons. Where are they / how do I get them working?

I'm talking about the small icons which in Unity would be in the top right, for things like date, battery, mail, bluetooth, wifi (and other installed apps such as nomachine, Copy etc in my case).

Just starting these programs should be enough to have their tray icon present. Put them in your `i3.conf` or in `.xinitrc`.
