Yeah, monocolor-&-clear icons, in my opinion are ugly, I can't identify
klipper fast as I want .

Yes I want back my older, traditional and colored application system
tray icons.

Change all theme seems a bad option.

I change every upgrade of kde klipper icon from kde 3.5

cp /home/sergio/tmp2/3.5s/klipper.svgz /usr/share/kde4/apps/desktoptheme/default/icons/klipper.svgz

I see now that icons are in 
/usr/share/kde4/apps/desktoptheme/default/icons but don't have
replacement for wallet , battery etc .
