main menu flip to extreme right in the panel


I am working on Localisation of Fedora in arabic.
Everything goes fine. There is a problem with the main menu. Actually, when the language is arabic, the menu should appear on the extreme right of the panel. But it is not happening. How to get the menu on the extreme right of the panel rather on the extreme left.If I would like to make it default, what should i do?
Please help me in this regard.

If you are using Kde, right click on the menu button, select "Move K menu", then move it to the position you want. Left click to paste it in that position.

You need to set some values in ~/.kde/share/config/kickerrc (I don't know if there are any global kickerrc files).

For example, by default with the kmenu on the left, in the [General] section with the Applets2 item KMenuButton_1 is listed first, but when it's on the right it's listed last (they're listed in their order on the kicker from left to right).

You also want to add a section [KMenuButton_1] which consists of the following:
Code:
[KMenuButton_1]
FreeSpace2=1
This tells the kicker to give 100% free space possible to the left of the kmenu, ie. shove it fully to the right.

I think you should be able to add the .kde/share/config/kickerrc file (with dirs up to .kde) to the /etc/skel directory, and then for every user that's created it will use this file. You can also make other customizations as you see fit.

In other words, copy the finalized kickerrc to the following:

/etc/skel/.kde/share/config/kickerrc
