    Application widgets don't work

    If I right click an application and select "Add to Panel (widget)", the resulting widget in the panel does not work. If clicked on, a "blank file" icon appears in the panel and quickly closes, and nothing happens.

    Which version of Kubuntu are you using? It's working well on my 22.04 (updated) here. No problem. So give us a little more to go on, thanks.

      I'm going to assume you're using 22.04, but where and how are you right-clicking on an application to select "Add to Panel" ?

        The simplest way to accomplish this is to launch the application, then right-click on the icon in the Panel and click Pin to Panel (or words to that effect).

          I get nothing about pinning to any Panel. That's why I asked for more info. Here, I can pin to the Task Manager, but the Panel only accepts widgets AFAIK.

            Ahh, I am using the "Application Dashboard" and it doesn't allow pinning Applications to the panel unless you go into the Applications list. If I switch to either of the alternatives - Application Launcher or Application Menu - they appear to allow pinning to the panel directly from the menu.

              BTW, using Application Launcher, I had no trouble pinning an Application to the Task Manager.
