I also run Slackware 13.37 and XFCE (just to get away from dumb stuff like Akonadi).
I have uninstalled the package, reinstalled it because other things will break, uninstalled it again, and then lost track.
One of those obnoxious KDE packages can be uninstalled, and another must be installed but can be disabled (and I cannot remember right now which is which).
I am on the wrong system to check.
I think it was something along the lines mentioned with StartServe=False.
Someplace deep in the system control pages where I unchecked a box so that it could not startup.
Akonadi runs in the background. Some of these icons will go away if you can stop the thing.
If right click does not give you the right menu, it is in the system controls.
