Hey, thanks guys. Yes,I did find that the task manager widget was somehow deleted so I added it back. That's ok. I still have the clock and tray on the left and they don't seem to want to move to the right. Not a big deal, I can live with it. I added back my Firefox icon and when I right click it and view icon settings it is labled as Firefox-2. Like my original Firefox icon still exists somewhere.? My dolphin icon is labled as dolphin, as in the one and only.
I may try deleting the panel and recreate to get it back like it was. I'll think about that for a few days. Also, if I lock widgets would this prevent this kind of mousing error?
This is the biggest problem I've had with Mint 13 KDE since install 2 months ago. Not bad, Mr. Linux.
