    Default System Tray Icons (and Function?) Changed in 13.1 KDE

    Somehow I seem to have lost the original System Tray icons that appeared after I installed 13.1. There used to be a ladybug like icon for the software updater and the Clipboard icon was also different. I managed to add back a Software Updater widget, but it does not look like the ladybug that was originally there. It looks like I somehow installed a different system tray. Is there any way to get the original back?

    in

    configure desktop > workspace appearance > desktop theme

    ensure you have openSUSE selected

    try changing to a different theme and then back again to see if that restores things.

    This thread is a bit old.. long and short of my issue is I messed up the window manager and had to reinstall KDE and now I'm trying to get all the KDE openSUSE specific icons back and the ladybug is missing. I tried changing the theme to Air and then back to openSUSE custom and no ladybug. Any help is appreciated.

    ???
    what is the ladybug icon for?
    I have no ladybug icon.
    What application / function is it associated with?
    Where is it usually located (taskbar, system tray, launcher)?

    The "ladybug" icon is the updater applet's (Apper) system tray icon.
    But by default it is hidden when there are no updates, so maybe that's why you don't see it?

    Click on the small up-arrow in the right side of the system tray (just left of the clock) to see the hidden icons and it should be there.
    You can also switch it to be always shown or always hidden in the system tray settings (right-click on that small up-arrow to reach them, and click on "Entries" there).
    You can also enable/disable the update applet completely there.

    ah, of course.
    I don't use apper (remove packagekit etc) so have rarely seen this icon. :-)

    Then you might have it disabled in the System Tray Settings. Make sure "Software Updates" is enabled there ("Display"->"Additional Elements").
    In that case Apper works just like in 12.3, i.e. there is no icon in the System Tray, but you get a standard notification when there are updates and clicking on "Review" will start Apper.
