Well, to start the kde panel (which kde calls 'kicker') you just need to run 'kicker'. As for if this will work under gnome... ???

Thanks....."kicker" worked ......
Is there a way i could add kde panel items such as system tray or klipper to gnome-panel........I want this because sometimes the gnome-notification-area applet in gnome-panel ( ...similar to system tray in kde...) is not able to put kde applications ( like knotes...) in its tray after minimizing.....
Any ideas????

I just don't think this is going to work...it is two different code bases with two different APIs.

Perhaps you could have gnome-panel at the top of your screen and kicker at the bottom...then you have best of both worlds (and a crowded desktop...)
