    Default System tray icons are not transparent in KDE-4.1

    This looks really ugly. I have klipper, kmix, knetwork-manager, amarok and pidgin running in my system tray always. The problem is that these icons have a white background and it looks very very ugly especially when you change the desktop theme to something that is darkish (like the oxygen theme with black background). Is there a fix for this?
    I am on openSUSE 11.0 with KDE-4.1 with the latest updates installed from the factory. Any help is appreciated.

    I am not sure if I agree with that. I see a lot of screenshots where the system tray icons are transparent. For example look at the October screenshots.

    I have no clue how they have transparent icons on the system tray. Any help appreciated.

    Some troubles are due to workarounds in the code that would otherwise make GTK+ applications crash (due to a bug in GTK+). A new and all improved systray is under development and will be in KDE 4.2.
