Yeah, that's way off for the games list indeed, my bad. As for if I *know*
something about them, no I don't know much about them. I've delved into
their code a bit when I was debugging why pdf files weren't opened with
okular in the plasma 5.0 days. I feel confident that I can find my way
around the sources as needed. I'm not sure exactly which jobs each of those
do, I know what kbuildsycoca is for and does roughly, but couldn't say what
the difference between kdeinit and klauncher is for example. I know dbus is
the glue that keeps them communicating though. Is dbus a first class
citizen on OS X now? I saw the messages when I installed the dbus port
suggesting how to make it start automatically, though it doesn't seem like
dbus-daemon is running here still.

Is there a list of known issues with these daemons/services on OS X? I
would expect it shouldn't take much to get them to work the same as they do
on linux because of it's unix underpinnings, but I could be wrong. Anyway,
I think we can get these issues solved together, yes. Since early this
month I've had a third of the screens facing me daily being OS X (the other
two screens are linux and windows, one of each) so I can test/tweak/play
until we get it working well.
