[kde-linux] 4.2 task bar/panel not working

Dear KDE helpers
I have recently installed Kubuntu 8.10 only to be disappointed by KDE
4.1. I managed to install 4.2 only to discover that the basic things I
was not able to do in 4.1 I still cannot do in 4.2.
The horizontal strip at the bottom I used to call the task bar consisted
of three areas: far left containing the K and quick launch with mostly
links to applications; the middle bit where buttons appear for each
application that is opened; the system tray where icons to system
applets and the time resides. Now I am sure I am using windows
terminology but I hope the description will enable anyone wishing to
help to help.
Those basic things are:
1) make shortcuts to applications next to the K
2) reposition the task bar from the bottom to vertical left
3) I cannot make a widget remain at the far right of the panel
(what used to be the task bar)
4) I have also noticed that when applications are open they do not have
a button in the task bar
I could do all these things in KDE 3.5 and I hope this functionality has
not been removed.
Your help and assistance is appreciated.
