Exclamation Programs on KDE 3.4.2 "b" Taskbar are gone


I can't see any loaded programs in my Taskbar. I have to switch them by using ALT+TAB, but it's very annoying. I tried Configure Panel...->Taskbar-> Show windows from all desktops, but it didn't work.
Here is my problem: http://img141.imageshack.us/img141/2...apshot45zi.jpg
Maybe someone can help me?

Never seen that before but have you tried logining in under a different username to see if it is the same there? If the taskbar is fine then something is corrupt on your configuration. Easiest way to fix is as follows. Note it makes backup of each so if you need something you still have it. What it does is reset KDE to default configuration.

Logout of KDE. If you get back to a gui login manager that is fine. If you do then hit Alt-Ctrl-F1. Now login as your user name and run the following commnads.
mv .config .config_backup
mv .local .local_backup
mv .kde .kde_backup

Now type exit to logout.
Hit Alt-Ctrl_F7 to get back to gui login manager. The F& may differ deopending on number of active terminals so you may need to use F2-F12 till the login manager comes up. Login and reconfigure your preferences. It will be just like you had it the first day.

You need to add the window list applet to kicker. Right click on an empty space on the panel -> Select "add applet" -> Window list.
