(i'm going to assume you're thinking of contributing to this, otherwise ignore
what follows and maybe file a feature request on bugs.kde.org instead :)
this is all controlled by Solid actions. there's even a UI to manage this,
which can be seen with `kcmshell4 solid-actions`.
what would be really nice is to:
* show that kcm UI in the device notifier settings; that would mean loading
the module and adding it to the KConfigDialog from
createConfigurationInterface(KConfigDialog *parent) in the device notifier.
should be pretty easy.
* if there is more than one action available, don't popup a separate dialog
but give the user the ability to select from the available actions right from
the device notifier interface, perhaps through a popup menu (ala the task
bar?) when clicked on
btw, there is/was a rewrite of the device notifier (still sitting in review,
in fact) but it never actually go to the point of being as well behaved
visually as the current one. not sure that's even needed now that the Device
Notifier already in kdebase now "looks plasma" enough?
