Like kicker. It did not require special kiker theme. For example, Qt themes prted from KDE3 (Phase for example) do not have style for plasma and hence the panel looks different than other windows. Ideally the panel should not utilize plasma at all. But since it is not the case, it should at least be able to make impression that it it not plasma, but a normal window.

No. It does affect my feel that KDE4 is something like home-made hobby DE like MinuetOS.

I do not use plasmoids other than folder view for the whole desktop. I want the abovementioned places were just as other icons (and I could work with them just as with others).

It was you who came here and asked what to do. I have other things to do. And I heve other DEs which are much better for me than KDE4.
