[Solved] Xfce4 (installed after KDE+sddm) systray missing

So, I want to try Xfce4 on my Arch, and I got an issue similar to this very old topic.

Can't add system tray/notification area

I cannot even connect to Wifi normally. Have to use nmcli.

The systray (notification area) and sn-tray have been merged into a new "Status Tray Plugin" in 4.16. Make sure you add that to your panel.

You'll also need something like network-manager-applet (and Network Manager) if you are looking for an applet on the panel to configure networking.

Thanks, actually I already work in the first place, although I only notice after I install `network-manager-applet` and / or run `ibus-daemon &`.

I have another problem, though.

- Chromium signed out, if I tried to use the same account inside Xfce4, then back to KDE.
- ibus-daemon started up automatically in Xfce4 as well, but as KDE version (`ibus-daemon -drx --panel=/usr/lib/kimpanel-ibus-panel`).
