Thanks for your work on it. Is it possible to enable some fake remote control? 
I would like to test the user interface, but since all buttons are disabled, I 
cannot invoke any dialog.

Some points I noticed from quickly looking at it:

* Inconsistent casing of UI strings, e.g. you have "Action" and "action" used 

* I never liked the fact that it installs its profiles into "DATADIR/profiles" 
directory. I would suggest to use either a subdirectory, e.g. 
"DATADIR/kremotecontrol/profiles", or just a different name, e.g. 
"DATADIR/remotecontrols". I think there was another different application that 
just installed stuff into the "profiles" directory, but not sure.

* Qt includes should take the form <QtModule/QClass>, I think there are issues 
on Mac otherwise.

* Regarding icons, is the devices-infrared-remote part of Oxygen? Having the 
icons named "ox" installs them into the oxygen folder. Should probably be "hi" 
for "highcolor"?

* Issues with trailing white space in source files (there are also other style 
issues, but I think kdeutils isn't as strict as kdelibs...)

* The old version had some messages/warnings for the infrared daemon, and 
there was also an icon in systray. I no longer get the icon, despite the kded 
settings says the daemon is started, and the related checkbox in the remote 
settings is checked. In other words, I miss any indication why I cannot click 
on any of the buttons in the kcm.
