In this paper, the particle trapping formalism is extended to the plasmas that their equilibrium state are specified by the non-Maxwellian (here kappa) distribution function. This is worthwhile because most of the space and some of laboratory plasmas are in the non-Maxwellian equilibrium. An analytical expression for the electron density, including the trapped electrons, is obtained. The ion-acoustic solitons are studied in this frame of work. It is shown that the deviation from Maxwellian plasma makes it possible for the stationary ion-acoustic solitons to move subsonically. Moreover, along with the κ variation, the study of transit processes associated with soliton properties from a non-Maxwellian distribution into a Maxwellian one is investigated.
