Review request for KDE Base Apps, Martin Gräßlin, John Tapsell, and Thomas Pfeiffer.

Repository: libksysguard


This adds a new "Tools" button to the ksysguard widget which contains entries to related tools:

- Run Command --> starts KRunner to execute a command
- KSysguard --> starts KSysguard (this is useful because Ctrl+Esc only starts the lightweight System Monitor which has less features)
- Info Center --> starts the Info Center which shows additional system information
- Htop --> starts htop
- Kill a window (Ctrl+Alt+Esc) --> triggers the KWin kill window function. The displayed shortcut is the one set in Global Keyboard Shortcuts. Currently, this shortcut is shown in the End Process... button tooltip but there it is hard-coded.

This RR replaces this old RR

- test if all tools start correctly
- check if a changed shortcut for Kill Window is shown in the tools menu (see screenshot)
- check if for example htop is not installed that there is no menu item for it
