This is how you do it:

Step 0. Add an ksysguard applet to your panel.

Go to the ksysguard applet corner (that little bar on the left of it).
"Right click" -> "Configure SysGuard". Set the "number of displays" to


Right click on one display at the panel applet directly, say CPU,
and "remove display".

Either way you should have an empty display at the applet.
