Here is what I added to the settings.kcfg. I placed the <signals> at the 
beginning of the .kfg 

<kcfgfile name="akirc" />
<signal name="serverTabPositionChanged">
    <argument type="Int">serverTabPosition</argument>
<signal name="channelTabPositionChanged">
    <argument type="Int">channelTabPosition</argument>
<entry key="serverTabPosition" type="Int">
    <emit signal="serverTabPositionChanged" />
<entry key="channelTabPosition" type="Int">
    <emit signal="channelTabPositionChanged" /> 

Basically what I'm trying to achieve is when the user changes the KComboBox 
value it will change the Server and Channel's Tab Position to top, bottom, 
left or right. 

void serverTabPositionChanged(int index)
    kDebug() << "Index: " << index;
    switch (Aki::Settings::serverTabPosition()) {
    case 0: {
    case 1: {
    case 2: {
    case 3: {

This is the slot that is connected to the serverTabPositionChanged. The only 
time I see the changes is when I restart the application.
