lost Mozilla and desktop not working


I am using KDE environment in openSUSE 11.1 and recently added gedit with command

zypper install gedit, but along with it a lot of GNOME packages got installed, so I decided to remove some of the GNOME packages using Yast and somehow also lost Mozilla and OpenWriter as well. I managed to get OpenWriter back by installing the OpenWriter packages from DVD installation, but there is still something wrong with the Panel Settings. i.e when I minimize all my doc, I should see under the Panel control which docs are open, but minimized but something is causing the minimized applications not to be shown? So only doing Alt-Tab then do I know how many applications are currently open? Anyone know how to resolve this, without complete reinstallation?
