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


This takes the patch back to my original proposition, because of my previous comment (avoid unheriting `QT_MAC_DISABLE_FOREGROUND_APPLICATION_TRANSFORM`).

There is one additional minor modification: `KDE_FULL_SESSION` has no special meaning on OS X. Advanced users might set it however, to unblock certain functionality elsewhere. Shunting kde_running to false means `kdeinit5` can be started through `kded5` regardless of whether `KDE_FULL_SESSION` is set; `kded5` is a "logical" utility to start in order to bootstrap the KDE runtime infrastructure (e.g. via a launchd plist).

Repository: kded


There should be no reason to build `kded5` as an app bundle on OS X, and with recent feedback in mind I postulated that marking it "nongui" (`ecm_mark_nongui_application`) would be acceptable on other platforms too.

Additionally, `kded5` doesn't have any more reason to appear in the Dock or app switcher, on OS X, so I have added the code to make it an agent.
