Well, you should use backticks ("`") around the "which" command:

$ rpm -qf `which plasma-applet-icontask`

See, for example, some Bash guide:
(section 3.4.5 - Command substitution)

Take a short look on my pic, i try it like that as well.
Also with ".

I took a look and you didn't tried that:)

Yo have tried " and ' , while you should use `. This symbol is usually located in the upper left corner of the keyboard, just under the "Esc" key.

Maybe you have some tricky font that doesn't allow to distinguish single quote (') from backtick (`) ?
