I used Gnome for a long time now (Ubuntu), but now I want to give KDE a try. Something I liked in Ubuntu/Gnome were the multiple panels on the top and the bottom.
So I want to create something similar in KDE (3.5.6).

On the already existing panel on the bottom I did rightclick and than 'Add New Panel' -> 'New Panel'. The new panel was created on the bottom, so I moved it with the mouse to the top.
Now the problem: I can't configure the top-panel. When I rightclick the top-panel and choose 'Configure' it only affects the bottom-panel. I can't find a way to configure the new top-panel.
Is this a bug? Or how can I configure the top-panel?

RE: Panels

Strange. Try asking in #kde. (Open up Konversation.)

Restart Kicker (the KDE Panel), by pressing Alt+F2 and typing

Source code

dcop kicker kicker restart

That should let you configure any new panel you add. (Repeat everytime you add a new panel).

It's a bug... :(
