You cannot emit a signal on the system bus unless you edit 
/etc/dbus-1/system.conf or system.d and give permissions to do that. Which 
means you need root permissions to install the necessary files, plus you'll 
need to define the interface which will emit the signal and what information it 
will carry.

Which means your solution will never be accepted by mainstream distros. Which 
means it has little sense to add support for catching the signal in KDE apps 
in the first place.

How about just doing the right thing and adding it to one of the system 
daemons that emit signals already?
