Already tried that
If you notice in my original post, I tried to do that. The "Add" option is only available if I am logged in as root. It is not available if I am logged in as a regular user. Logged in as a regular user I get the following options: "KDE Panel Handbook", "Report Bug", "About KDE Panel..." and "About KDE". As you can see, no "Add" option is available. I am sure it has something to do with a security setting somewhere in eihter SuSE or KDE but I cannot find it.
Thanks for any help!
