http://ubuntuguide.net – Since Unity became the default DE in Ubuntu, it’s not easy to customize the panel. Appication indicators used to be movable by right-clicking on icons, but now unity’s panel indicator doesn’t.

For global, all user will take effect by editing /usr/share/indicator-application/ordering-override.keyfile. Here use gedit: sudo gedit /usr/share/indicator-application/ordering-override.keyfile In picture the value of indicators 1 ~ 5 means the icons order in top-pa (HowTos)
