I use my laptop in 3 display setups:

  • laptop only
  • laptop + monitor
  • laptop + projector

For each one I use different screen setup and panel layout. It's quite boring to modify layout after each display setup change.

As I can use ARandr to create display setups and save them into executable, is there something similar to do same with KDE panels?

unfortunately, not at this time no. There currently are some people working on kscreen stuff. Don't know if they actually plan on making this happen. I want this feature too. (pretty sure I have a bug open for screen profiles) – xenoterracide Oct 15 '13 at 21:39

If your KDE4 installation doesn't provide krandr (or perhaps KRandRTray as it was called on KDE3) you may be screwed until things get better (perhaps with KDE5?).
