System tray icons problem after update to KDE4.2.3

I am using 32bit openSUSE 10.3 running KDE4. I upgraded from KDE4.2.2 to KDE4.2.3 and suddenly Kopete system tray icon goes missing. I mean just the icon is missing, all the functionality is there. And also kmix is using KBasket’s icon, again all functionality intact just the icon is off.
I searched the forums to see if anyone faced a similar issue but did not find anything helpful. Any pointers?


Post your repo’s

zypper lr -u -p

I am not able to use online repos from behind my company’s firewall. Since I cannot do a direct online update, I use a script to get the required RPMs into my local yast2 reporsitory and update from there.
I used the following repos to manually get the RPMs:

  • KDE4:Factory: Desktop
  • KDE4:STABLE: Desktop

A list of some key kde4 related packages I have installed might help:

  • libkde4-4.2.3-116.5
  • libkdecore4-4.2.3-116.5
  • kde4-kwin-4.2.3-230.2
  • kdebase4-session-4.2.3-32.14
  • kdebase4-workspace-ksysguardd-4.2.3-230.2
  • kdebase4-runtime-4.2.3-100.3
  • kdebase4-workspace-4.2.3-230.2
  • kdebase4-workspace-branding-openSUSE-11.1-83.39
  • kdebase4-libkonq-4.2.3-81.2
  • kdebase4-4.2.3-81.2
  • kdebase4-openSUSE-11.1-83.39
  • libqt4-4.5.1-44.1
  • libqt4-x11-4.5.1-44.1
  • libqt4-qt3support-4.5.1-44.1

My advice is not to use those repos but switch to these

Index of /repositories/KDE:/42/openSUSE_11.1

Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Community/openSUSE_11.1_KDE_42

and you should not mix stable and factory

Hey, thanks I did not know that the new KDE:42 repository was the recommended one. I will try installing packages from there ans see how it goes.

BTW, is it that the packages from KDE:42 use Qt44? Cause it seems the packages from KDE:KDE4:Factory: Desktop use Qt45.

Yes. The repo’s you used are being used for packages under heavy development and use QT45
The ones I gave are QT44

Some have been adding a separate repo for QT44 and sometimes even QT45, to the repo setup I gave you. But this is not necessary.

That worked like a charm. Thanks a lot mate!

You are welcome;)
