ksensors and knetload in kde3.4.2


Probably a dumb question but I'll ask it anyway in hopes of it being a simple solution. I've downloaded both ksensors and knetload to monitor network throughput and cpu/mobo temps. However when I run these programs from the command line, where do they go? They don't seem to dock to my panel anywhere, nor do they show up in the "applets" menu where I would normally add things to kicker. Do I need to have the system tray enabled? I scrapped it early on when I was setting up how I wanted my panel to look, is having it necessary to get these applets to work?

Go ahead and disregard that previous question, I figured it out. For anyone playing along at home, yes you do indeed need to have the system tray enabled on kicker to see these apps. I think in the past the docked directly to the panel but have been relegated to the tray in more current versions. Working great, and would highly recommend ksensors to anyone who has the appropriate sensors installed with their mobo/cpu. Good for keeping an eye on things :-)
