We have several SLES 9 servers with KDE desktops. We need to remove a couple of the icons that are in the panel on the bottom left of the desktop next to the "Start" button.

I'd like to push out a little bash script to delete them but I can't find them. They don't seem to be in the ~/.kde directory or anywhere else I've looked. Any idea where these little suckers are kept?

Thanks.

Desktop configuration can also be under ~/.local. That said, a better way to do this is not removing files, but using dcop (for KDE3) or qdbus (KDE4) to tell KDE to remove it. (This if the user is logged in, of course; in that case, simply removing the file may not work because KDE will rewrite it.)

I couldn't run dcop or qdbus, but I did eventually find the location. ~/.kde/share/apps/kicker. Thanks! –  Ed Manet May 6 '11 at 15:23
