Moving the Panel bar in KDE4
 
I just upgraded to Kubuntu 8.0.4 and KDE4. I have a 3 monitor setup. In KDE4, the panel bar (with the app buttons, Kicker, clock, etc...) is on my leftmost monitor and I'd like to move it to my center monitor. I have yet to figure out where I can change that behavior. Anybody know?

Thanks,
Matt

Why not just put that monitor in the center? Failing that you'll need to define the central monitor as the primary display. Take a look at your xorg.conf file (make a backup of it first if you intend to make changes).

My center monitor is a 20" widescreen LCD, while the two side monitors are regular 17" LCDs....so moving is not an option.

How does one define a monitor as primary in the xorg.conf file?

Here's my xorg.conf file...much of it originally I had to manually figure out because of my different screen sizes. I've never gotten any of the fancy Beryl stuff to work because I can't get GLX to work in my situation... I have two dual-head video cards, a 6600 and 5500. Maybe in 8.0.4 it will?
