gaim tray icon / applet problem


I`m currently using GAIM 0.64 on my Slackware 9.0 box,
and it`s by far the best messenger I`ve came across.

But one problem keeps getting me confused:

Gaim supports a tray icon /applet for the kde tray whenever
it is minimized etc (just like the windows ICQ version)

I am running fluxbox stable (latest version) with --enable-kde,
which means i should be able to load tray icons from kde into
the Slit (dock).

But this isn`t working, I`ve tried enabling the applet in the plugins
preferences, but no effect.

Google and Newsgroup searches had no results, there were only a few
posts about the 0.59.x releases.

Any ideas?

Just solved my problem.

I just downloaded "docker" (link @ freshmeat)
and run it, whenever you enable the plugin it docks.
