    Default System tray icons in kde 4.2 b2


    I have just recently updated system with KDE 4.2 beta2 from KDE 4.1.3
    while running openSUSE 11.0. I know that there are some bugs about this
    beta too.
    But my problem is, that my system tray icons are not there, even the
    system tray is there.
    Any work out on this.
    Help will be appreciated.

    Thanks
    ANL

    I don't have this problem, running on an old low-spec test machine. All
    I can think of is to manually add one by clicking on add widgets and
    scrolling to the bottom to pick what you want.

    Thanks for the hint.
    I have tried that too, also adding new system tray from widget.
    but no luck. All it showing is a blank tray.

    Try this: press

    Ctrl-Alt-F1

    type:

    mv /home/*username/.kde4 .kde4old

    reboot

    (you .kde4 folder will have been re-named .kde4old) you will start a
    New session with default settings, you may be able to import SOME
    settings back, but be prepared to statt all over.

    I have implement that line, all goes fine.
    But the system tray again is blank. Desktop is cleaned. All settings
    gone, no worries about this but again system icons?
    This thing make me crazy. The bad bad thing is that it is my office
    computer. I cannot proceed with any work now.

    Is there a way to restore to old kde4.1.3.

    When you ass a new Tray/Panel, it is blank. But the fact that a new
    .kde4 login came up blank is very odd.

    Do you have kde3 installed? You could login there and work on your
    problem when you have a free moment.

    Run yast from the CLI as su

    yast2

    Install kde3base
    kde3desktop

    from the patterns

    Add this repo (you did say you were using 11.0)

    kde3 build service
    'Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE3/openSUSE_11.0'
    (http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_11.0/)

    Add the base and desktop patterns if you haven't already
    then update all in that new repo
