Jaunty kde3 remix - no application icons in kicker

I recently made an upgrade from Hardy to Jaunty on my laptop (Intel-X86 
packages). Since KDE4 doesn't provide the full functionality of KDE3 I 
installed kubuntu-desktop-kde3 following the instructions given on 
https://wiki.kubuntu.org/Kubuntu/Kde3/Jaunty to get a system with two 
parallel desktops. After kicking out some leftover Hardy-packages I 
eventually managed to get a working KDE-3.5.10.

But KDE3 started with an empty KDE panel. I first had to add applets 
like "Clock", "K Menu", "Show Desktop", "Taskbar", "Trash" etc. again to get 
what I used to have before the upgrade. The only thing still missing are the 
icons of programs like "kalarm", "kpowersave", "kmix", "kgpg" etc. All of 
these programs are running on my system either in the KDE3 or KDE4 version. 
But none of them seem to register with kicker under KDE3 whereas the icons 
appear in the panel of KDE4.

How can I fix this problem?
