    Default Icon dissappeared openSUSE 11

    Hi,
    I am using openSUSE 11 and I reinstalled Konqueror. For some reason the icon (Show desktop) next to the openSUSE start button on the Kde taskbar dissappeared. It now only shows an "i" with the following message: "This object could not be created". Is there a possiblility to get it back. Should I reinstall some program in Yast?

    Thanks

    Right click desktop to unlock widgets
    Open the Panel from the lower right corner tool box
    Add widget - type: show in the search field
    Select showdesktop
    Then click the add widget
    You may have to move it
    Then lock the widgets

    if you're using KDE3 you can delete:
    ~/.kde/share/config/kickerrc
    and your whole panel will reset to the factory standard,
    when you re-login.
    in KDE4 it's the config file:
    ~/.kde4/share/config/plasmarc

    just execute:
    Code:
    rm ~/.kde/share/config/kickerrc
    in a konsole
    or
    Code:
    rm ~/.kde4/share/config/plasmarc
    if using KDE4 and logout.

    When you login again, the panel should be reset.

    Hi,
    I followed your advice regarding the deletion of the config file. Im using KDE 4. I logged out and back in again, but is still have the error on the panel (taskbar). I also have a widget on the desktop with an "i" that has the same error, which states " This object could not be created." It seems asif i am missing some components or programs.

    Any other suggestions?

    Thanks

    I can e-mail you a screenshot of the error on my desktop if it would make the matter a bit clearer for you.
    Thanks
