I have several plugins (and thus .desktop files) that have the same 
library which loads them baseds on their name (using some RDF from 
Nepomuk). I also have other different plugins belonging to different 
I would like to identify the libraries of the corresponding plugins (the

the X-KDE-Library property). I hoped there was a way to see what library 
did the plugin belong to.
