Ok that can be done. I've been wondering how installation of the plugins
will happen though. Will they go into a system-wide directory? This will of
course require root access.
As discussed previously, using a .desktop file is not desired by the plugin
developers. What do you think of the idea of having an installation tool in
kst that would actually create a .desktop file and install the plugin
according to KDE standards? This assumes that there is not already a
standard installation location for this plugin format, however.
Also, do you happen to have the source to a plugin handy? It would be good
to have a demo plugin to work with.
