Hey did you make your own icons for the systray and also how did you manage to get the panel so small and have those icons adjust to the size of the panel? Every time I do it the systray icons only shrink a little and end up looking horrible.
No, I haven't changed the icons but the ugly icons are hidden. You can change the thickness of the panels in KDE if you click the cashew. There is an option in the middle of the panel and the icons will be also smaller.
