Description Hans-Rudi Denzler 2005-12-01 21:26:11 UTC
Version:           3.5 (using KDE 3.5.0 Level "a" , unofficial build of SUSE )
Compiler:          gcc version 3.3.3 (SuSE Linux)
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.6.5-7.201-default

KDE 3.4.3: OK
KDE 3.5:   NOT OK

Twinview: left=2, right=1
display: 2560x1024

Icons should be rearranged on screen 2 not 1.

After removing second panel or kasbar everything is OK.
Comment 1 Hans-Rudi Denzler 2005-12-02 19:30:12 UTC
(1)freely defineabe area, where icons are rearranged horizontally or vertically

(2) remove all icons from desktop, add external taskbars (left-screen-right, right-screen left, right-screen bottom

new design: (--> Aaron Seigo)
(3) free positionable shrink/expand panel-hiding button, not hidden in automatical hiding mode.

With this design, the desktop can be basically empty except the visible panel-hiding buttons, which are hotspots for further actions.
Comment 2 Hans-Rudi Denzler 2005-12-03 08:34:14 UTC
I moved all icons to external taskbars.

Adding icons to empty desktop solves the problem.

Arranging icons horizontally/vertically is OK now.

Remove Additional Comment #2

cd ~
rm .kde/share/apps/kicker/*
rm .kde/share/apps/kdesktop/IconPositions
rm .kde/share/config/childpanel* kickerrc
# restart
# add icon to desktop + rearrange
# add Universal Sidebar (left) + rearrange <screen 1, right>
# add Panel (right) + rearrange <screen 2, left>
# remove Panel (All)

now icons are OK!

From the look of it, I can add my confirmation of this bug here.

I'm using the nVidia drivers and two screens.  Screen 2 is on the left, screen 1 is on the right.

Unlike the original poster, I cannot place desktop icons on my left screen (screen 2), no matter what kind of kicker config/child panels exist.

Basically, if /any/ of the desktop icon arrangement schemes are used (arrange horizontally, vertically, or 'to grid'), all desktop icons are moved to screen 1 (the right screen).

Not being able to place icons on screen 2 at all in that setup may be bug #116341
