I'm not exactly sure I understand the problem, but if you want to
make kghostview's GUI visibile in your dialog then the following
code snipped should probably work:

KXMLGUIBuilder *builder = new KXMLGUIBuilder( dialog );
KXMLGUIFactory *guiFactory = new KXMLGUIFactory( builder );
guiFactory->addClient( ghostviewPart );


(and possibly later in your destructor)
guiFactory->removeClient( ghostviewPart );
delete guiFactory;
delete builder;

Is that what you mean?
