For some strange reason, whenever I log in to my LXDE desktop, I see the KDE accessibility applet on the panel/taskbar. I can't figure out what's triggering it being run and how I can stop it from running.

So, what's the cause and what's the cure?


  • I can shut it down, but it respawns after a while.
  • I'm using Debian Stretch on an x86_64 system.

    Got the same problem, but in XFCE. No solution so far. – kYuZz Mar 29 '16 at 11:46

A partial answer about the cause. It's amarok. When I don't run amarok after login - this doesn't happen. As soon as I bring amarok up, I get the accessibility icon. I would guess there are probably some other KDE apps which trigger this, but - not all of them. Probably not most of them.
