Review request for KDE Software on Mac OS X and KDE Runtime.

Repository: kde-runtime


This patch turns kioexec into a proper background agent on OS X, a utility app that can present widgets but does not otherwise appear in the Dock, app switcher or in the global menubar.

I have previously proposed a patch that modifies the behaviour of the CMake NOGUI flag in the declaration of an application (kde4_add_executable). On OS X this prevents the application from being built as an app bundle; my patch also causes the KApplication instance to be created with `GUIenabled=false`. 

The current patch reverses that for unsetting the `KDE_WITHOUT_GUI` macro, and introduces the code already committed to kglobalaccess that toggles the required switch for becoming an "agent" in the applications Info Dictionary.

Diffs (updated)

  kioexec/main.cpp 06cd8f3 



On OS X 10.9.4 with kdelibs git/4.14 .
