How can i clone my customized xfce4 panel to another computer?

OK after almost an hour of modifications on my xfce4 panel, i am very satisfied with the result. And here is the BIG question. How can i clone/copy my customized panel to my wife's computer or any other computer? Hope i can do that somehow as it will save me a lot of work on any new installation. Could you point me on the right direction of how to do that ?
I would appreciate a step by step guide as i m new in xfce DE. Thank you

I think you can just copy this file:

~/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-panel.xml

But there may be something in addition...

xfce4-panel-profiles (formerly xfpanel-switch) allows you to back up and restore panel configurations.

Greetings!

Simply open your synaptic package manager, look for "xfpanel-switch", then select it for installation, "apply" your selection, and tahdah -- installed. I did this yesterday on my LM18.3 systems because i rely on heavily-customized panels and needed this feature before it becomes standard {or so i hope} in the upgrade to LM19.1 ...

Tested and works like a charm smile

Cheers, m4a
