taskbar in 3.5.4

I installed KDE 3.5.4 in Kubuntu Dapper Drake today, the first day it was released, and almost everything seems to be working well. I especially appreciate the improved USB device support. One problem I have, though, is that open applications are not displayed on the taskbar. I have checked the panel configuration, and they should be showing up. All icons for applets and quick-launch applications that I have selected to be displayed appear on the panel as they should. I have logged out and logged back in to restart KDE, and I have rebooted, but still no applications in the toolbar. Is this a bug? Anyone have suggestions about what the problem might be or how I might fix it? It is a bit inconvenient to have to middle click on an empty space on the desktop to see the windows that should be displayed on the taskbar.


I have, on closer examination of the available applets, found that the taskbar is now an applet that must be added to the panel before it is enabled, so I have found the solution to my problem.

You should also be aware that while Kubuntu has made the latest KDE 3.5.4 packages available, they highly do not recommend upgrading yet, unless you know how to work around the bugs.

Btw, the taksbar has always been a Kicker applet.
