Pidgin itself works perfectly fine, the problem is tray icon isn't visible. It actually occupies normal space in the tray, but it's just empty.
I've searched this forum and googled a lot, nothing seems to be relevant though.
I'm using current KDE 2012 build, and I refuse to believe I'm the only one having this issue... But even if that would be the case, maybe someone can suggest anything? Should I install something additionally?
And yes, the "icon" itself can be clicked, and since it's a big space I can target it easily so it's not really a show-stopper for me, it's the inability to fix such a simple thing is what driving me crazy here
