We have a semantics problem here.  KDE-3 had a TaskBar which is now 
called the TaskManager.  But, you can't add widgets to it.  I presume 
that you are using 'task bar' as it is used for MS-Windows.  IIUC, it 
means Panel.  If there is a 'desktop' file for the applet (widget) you 
should be able to simply drag that 'desktop' to the Panel after you 
"Unlock Widgets".
