Issue Report: KDE Integration
It looks like there is no KDE Integration for steam. The windowmanagement buttons dont work correctly. And there is no systemtray Icon for steam.

If you install libappindicator1, there is an icon in the systray - it just isn't the steam icon (at least not here).

+1, hope they add soon, as I just migrated to KDE.

I use Kubuntu 12.04 LTE, which uses KDE as Desktop and there is a icon in the system Tray. Maybe your Problem is not a KDE issue?

Maybe you could give some more details?

yes, KDE is better for Steam and yes, steam need KDE integration.
in KDE have a bug with the mouse pointer.

I use Kubuntu too, and the window managing buttons doesn't appear on the normal task manager, only on Icon-only Task manager widget. There isn't a system tray icon too. But the mouse pointer bug doesn't happen with me.

There's no systray icon on Unity either.

I'm using Kubuntu 12.10 with the latest KDE SC available (4.9.4). I also have this ugly looking mouse pointer, but the client and the two games i have installed (TF2 and Serious Sam perfroming very well in my opinion.
Within Unity you can use the Steam Button in the menubar as a tray icon.

Fedora 17 x64 here, KDE obviously, no mouse pointer issue, although there is no tray icon (I think valve didn't use any universal lib for this, only unity specific one), shouln't be a big problem to fix :)

Are there even any "universal" libs for this? I know GTK and Qt each have their own implementations of systray items, each talking directly to X, but I don't think Steam guys want to start linking to either of these widget toolkit libraries.
Libappindicator seems like a good solution (use unity's app indicator stuff, fallback to generic systray if unity is not present), unless it is too large or has too many unneeded dependencies.

I too vote for this problem - I don't see why Steam shouldn't use the Qt method, considering it's built on Qt anyway.

Yeah, Unity.

Yes, we need better KDE support. So this is my +1.

Example of problems with KDE integration besides tray icon:

+1 for KDE support.
