I have a dual display Fedora 16. How can I change the primary screen (the one with the panel)?

What video driver are you using? (Nouveau, nvidia proprietary, radeon, fglrx, …) –  Gilles Feb 9 '12 at 22:26
    
I still haven´t install driver for video. As I recall, my video card was some Radeon. –  fiction Feb 9 '12 at 22:52

If you do not use a proprietary display driver with its own display controls, you can open gnome-control-center (e.g. after hitting ALT+F2) and select "Displays". Here, you can simply drag the black bar from the top (it represents the panel) and drag it to the symbol of the desired screen: Gnome's display settings

All this assumes Gnome 3.2.

OMG, I´ve missed the big black bar on top of the displays. 10x. –  fiction Feb 10 '12 at 8:15
