Icons should be rearranged on screen 2 not 1.
After removing second panel or kasbar everything is OK.
(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.
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
rm .kde/share/config/childpanel* kickerrc
# 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
