Description:

This is KDE desktop mouse action plugin that executes a command line.
Inspired by Favorites Launcher.

USAGE:
After build/install restart KDE (re-login).
Left click on desktop -> Default Desktop Settings -> Mouse Actions

From the drop-down list select Command Launcher.
Click its configuration button and type in a command.
This will be executed directly.
Mark an \"Execut via \'bash -c\'\" to run via bash.

EXAMPLE:
1. Assign the following to the selected mouse button to run \"Present Windows\" effect:
qdbus org.kde.kglobalaccel /component/kwin org.kde.kglobalaccel.Component.invokeShortcut ExposeAll

2. Assign the following to the selected mouse button to run \"Desktop Grid\" effect:
qdbus org.kde.kglobalaccel /component/kwin org.kde.kglobalaccel.Component.invokeShortcut ShowDesktopGrid

3. Cube fans can use:
qdbus org.kde.kglobalaccel /component/kwin org.kde.kglobalaccel.Component.invokeShortcut Cube


BUILD:
mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` ..
make

INSTALL:
sudo make install

Note:
It might build against lower KDE version that 4.12, edit it in CMakeLists.txt.
Since I tested with 4.12 I put this version there.

Looks cool but the name should really reflect better what this plugin is. Something like "Desktop mouse plugin Command Launcher". Not so nice but very informative.

Yes, could be, I simply used other plugin name convention.
