desktop access button on panel


I am trying to get desktop access button by default on the kicker(panel)
Can anybody guide me?
I know a panel content can be added by using dcop but desktop access button is a special button.
Any KDE gurus out there can guide me

Is this what you mean?

Right-click on Panel.
Follow "Panel Menu", "Add to Panel", "Special Button". On my KDE 3.4 the desktop one is second from the top of the resulting menu.

What do you mean "default"? After you add it, it stays until you remove it. Anyway, look for the file named 'kickerrc'. Mine is in ~/.kde/share/config/ for the per-user config and /etc/kde/ for all-user defaults. The syntax of the file is pretty self-explanatory.
