User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030314

Description of problem:
I am using Gnome w/phoebe beta 3. When I start knewsticker, it does not appear
on the taskbar, but towards the top of the screen.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Log in under X windows.
2.Start KNewsTicker.

Actual Results:  The KNewsTicker window appears about 3/4 of the way up the
screen and 1/4 of the way over from the left.

Expected Results:  KNewsTicker should appear on the taskbar.

Additional info:
Comment 1 Ngo Than 2003-03-24 08:28:24 EST
KNewsTicker is a KDE applet and only docks in taskbar by using KDE as desktop.
Comment 2 James Jones 2003-03-24 09:07:57 EST
Thanks for the response. Given that, should KNewsTicker be in the Internet>More
Internet Applications menu for Gnome? The naive user (e.g. me :) will expect it
to behave nicely, and be surprised.
