  Normally KDE 2.1 should have native support for dockable apps. Extract from

Teach me passion for I fear it`s gone. Show me love, hold the lorn.
So much more I wanted to give to the ones who love me. I`m sorry.
Time will tell (this bitter farewell)
I live no more to shame nor me nor you
And you... I wish I didn`t feel for you anymore...
