Ok, yeah, you're right, sorry I missed that part. I think in that case the 
optimal situation would be 2 options: 'force kuiserver', 'use kuiserver if 
available or fallback otherwise' (of course in less technical terminology). 
Because if the user took time to add the kuiserver plasmoid to it's desktop, I 
think he would get confused if that wouldn't work and he would still see 
Any idea on where to put that option though?
