It was a long time before I realised that it was, as you might say, a 
sideshoot of korganizer, not korganizer itself ;-)

Small attachments are allowed, but it's better to upload screenshots to 
imagebin.org (temporary storage), but before you do, maybe it's actually much 
simpler than I first thought.  Try this.

In kickoff (new-style menu) put korganizer into the search box, and when you 
see the correct entry, right-click on it and Add to Panel.  Then use the 
instructions you can see in this screencast 
http://userbase.kde.org/Plasma/FAQ/HowTo#Panel_Widgets, third entry, to move 
the icon to where you want it.

Does that do what you want?

New to KDE4? - get help from http://userbase.kde.org
Just found a cool new feature?  Add it to UserBase
