If you are like me and hate that useless icon/widget in the upper right corner of your desktop, you'll be happy to hear there is a way to get rid of it.
Install this plasmoid widget, http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.ph ... tent=91009 , add it to your desktop and the cashew is gone!
I saw this sometime back and didn't try it because I didn't want to replace one useless widget with another.
But even though you are technically adding a widget to your desktop environment it doesn't add anything you can see so it's all good.
Here's a guide to install. You will need the KDE development packages to install.
