Perhaps I should clarify that I can add the icons to the Panel, the 
problem is that they don't have the correct icon and they don't open the 
applets.  KDE-4 is installed in /usr/KDE-4 and the 'desktop' files are 
in: "/usr/share/applnk/Utilities/XUtilities".  The problem, the bug, is 
that the URL in: "$HOME/.kde4/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc" is 
wrong.  Correcting it by hand fixed the problem.
