So is anything else, that is part of the default KDE startup.

He quits klipper again and chooses "Yes" this time ;)

I run kicker on the left side. And only the wide kicker allows to have two
system tray apps next to each other, so they consume little space. If I would
use it in small mode, they would stack up and limit the taskbar space (which
would also be quite hard to use when you only see an icon for every task).
