    Unhappy kde 4.2 system tray icon problem

    Hi guys,

    I'm new here. I did some research about this problem and no luck yet.

    My system tray icons look weird. Once i booted up, it was fine but after a few minutes later, its all looks like this http://img18.imageshack.us/img18/7463/snapshot1x.png

    I know it isn't a big deal but it bothers me seeing other guys' desktop are perfect but not mine.

    I'm using kde 4.2 and geforce 8800 with latest driver 130.

    can you guys please help me with it? thanks

    Problem should have been fixed in 4.2.1,

    Do you have the Qt45 packages installed?

    Go to '>Yast2controlcenter>Software>Software Repositories' and see if you have a 'qt45' repo. To install it go to:

    Index of /repositories/KDE:/Qt45/openSUSE_11.1

    and select your arch and then go to >Yast2controlcenter>Software>Software Repositories select '>Add>Specify URL' and copy and paste that url in the 'URL' line and add whatever title you prefer. I'm in x86_64 so I would copy and paste:

    Index of /repositories/KDE:/Qt45/openSUSE_11.1/x86_64

    Then update your system.
    Thanks,

    Another solution and what I'm currently running with no problems that I've noticed yet is to remove any KDE repos you have and upgrade to KDE 4.2.1:

    KDE/Repositories - openSUSE

    and add the repos for your version of openSUSE there then update.
    Thanks,

    Hi guys,

    I tried what you guys said. My kde is already in version 4.2.1 before I upgrade it. But I upgraded it anyway. Not sure if it is qt45 now but still got the same problems.

    Well, it's easy enough to check if you managed to get qt45 installed.

    Open a konsole and type:

    Code:
    kwin --version
    The first line of the output should say Qt: 4.5.0 if qt45 is installed. That problem is supposed to be fixed if Qt45 is used.
