He wants to know how to add a KDE applet to the Gnome panel. In Gnome,
if you right-click on the panel, you have the option to "+Add to
Panel..." If you select that option, a pop-up appears with a list of
applets you can add (things like Deskbar, Disk Mounter, Force Quit,
Workspace Switcher, etc.). His KDE applet does not appear in that list,
so the question is, how does he add it?
Applets, as a rule, don't sit in the system tray (at least, none that I
use do). The sit on the panel.
