Question Switching desktop Icons on taskbar


I am using Mandrake 9.1.
the swtching desktop icons on the taskbar have disappeared. Those buttons were very convieneint now to change desktop i have to click on the arrow on the taskbar which brings up anopther pop up menu from which I have to choose the required desktop.
I can't seem to figure out how to bring back those buttons for switchign desktops.

Can someone help me please!

btw....I work on KDE.

Thanks

alternatively, you can always change desktop using the shortcut key which by default is CTRL+F1 for desktop one, CTRL+F2 for desktop two etc.

incidentally, on adding the pager applet back (like rmartine suggested) you need to click on an area of the task bar that's unused, so if you don't see the "add applet bit" use:
right click taskbar>panel menu>add applet>pager

(sorry to nitpick ramartine, it just took me ages to work it out when i last lost my pager )
