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


Added kde-mac group.

NB: nothing to do with this patch, the thumbnail bar doesn't "deploy" in full-screen mode on OS X.

Repository: gwenview


This patch takes care of 2 things on OS X:
- it prevents the application icon (installed via `ecm_add_app_icon`) to be replaced by an empty icon in main (`QApplication::setWindowIcon(QIcon::fromTheme(QStringLiteral("gwenview")))`)
- it installs an extended `Info.plist` and an event filter that catches `QFileOpenEvent`s so that gwenview can open documents served through LaunchServices, e.g. when using the Finder's "Open With" function. This same code should also work under MS Windows.

  app/main.cpp 806fcab 
  app/mainwindow.h 6d252f9 
  app/mainwindow.cpp 7b30c4e 

Diff: https://git.reviewboard.kde.org/r/127932/diff/


With OS X 10.9.5, Qt 5.6.0 and K5FWs 5.20.0 . It currently doesn't attempt to queue incoming requests in some sort of temporal buffer so that it can open groups of documents.
