Hi Nepal,

Thank you for responding.  I thought all of the features of the panel were 
plasmoids, however, I can't seem to identify the one that reveals the progress 
of a download.  When I download anything, an icon on the panel, which looks 
like bars revolving in the pattern of a clock, and clockwise in their motion, 
appears.  At the same time, a progress bar in a drop-down box shows the 
progress of the download.  

Earlier in Kubuntu Karmic the clockwise icon used to be a circle with an "i" 
in the center.  It also had a drop-down box from the panel that showed a 
progress bar.  Additionally, it showed the speed in kbps in print under the 
progress bar.  It is not critical and the change must have been made in an 
update of the OS, but I liked that feature very much.  I was hoping that I 
could locate a configuration for that feature and add the kpbs speed of 
download back in again.  Thanks!
