static QList< KMoreToolsService * > registerServicesByGroupingNames (KMoreTools *kmt, const QStringList &groupingNames)

Detailed Description

Provides static methods to make use of desktop files provided by KMoreTools.

registerServiceByDesktopEntryName creates a KMoreToolsService instance from a given desktopEntryName.

registerServicesByGroupingNames takes a list of a set of predefined grouping names and returns a list KMoreToolsService instances. Remember, a KMoreToolsService represents a service which might or might not be installed on the current machine.

The groupings defined here are used for the KMoreToolsMenuFactory.

(todo later: Probably it would make sense to move the methods of this class to KMoreToolsMenuFactory because grouping names and special handling are too much coupled anyway.)

Member Function Documentation

KMoreToolsService * KMoreToolsPresets::registerServiceByDesktopEntryName ( KMoreTools kmt,
const QString desktopEntryName 

Registers a service who's kmt-desktopfile is provided by the KMoreTools library itself (see directory kmoretools-desktopfiles).

If the kmt-desktopfile is missing the service is still created but with no translations and icon if the service is not installed.

Associates a homepage URL because a regular .desktop file has got no field for this information.

Adds some corrections to faulty upstream .desktop files. Corrected desktop filenames end with .kmt-edition.desktop.

todo: how to avoid the "Do you trust this program?" question when a non-installed kmt-edition desktopfile is used but the program is installed? Possible solution: install all .kmt-edition files to proper desktop file location.

QList< KMoreToolsService * > KMoreToolsPresets::registerServicesByGroupingNames ( KMoreTools kmt,
const QStringList groupingNames 
an ordered list of KMoreToolsService instances. The most popular or recommended tools will be listed first.

Available grouping names (listed in alphabetical order):

  • "disk-usage" Disk usage tools as currently used in dolphin. Some take 1 URL argument pointing to a directory.
  • "disk-partitions" Disk partition tools as currently used in dolphin.
  • "files-find" Tools to find files on disk. You can specify 1 URL argument that points to the directory where the search should be started.
  • "font-tools" (since 5.37.0) Tools to manage and analyze fonts.
  • "git-clients-for-folder" Collection of git clients which all take 1 URL argument pointing to a directory within a git repository. It may not be the git repo's root dir. e.g. "file:///home/user1/dev/kf5/src/frameworks/knewstuff/data/"
  • "git-clients-and-actions" Git clients and actions (e.g. View History for a specific file) to be used in a file tree context menu (e.g. in kate's project plugin). 1 URL argument can be provided that points to a directory or a file within a git repository. e.g. "file:///home/user1/dev/knewstuff/data/" e.g. "file:///home/user1/dev/knewstuff/data/CMakeLists.txt"
  • "icon-browser" Browse for icons on your system (e.g. those under /usr/share/icons).
  • "language-dictionary" (since 5.37.0) Language dictionaries for translation
