Kdeclarative: Introduce org.kde.kio component
Review Request #119552 - Created July 31, 2014 and submitted
With the specific component we will be able to open files,documents,applications etc.
Because until now we are not able to open them.
Everything seems to work ok.
- Applications open properly if we pass their desktop file as a parameter
- Files and images are opening properly
When I call Qt.openUrlExternally("/home/user/somepicture.jpg") it will make Gwenview open that file, similar when I do Qt.openUrlExternally("http://www.kde.org/") it invokes KIO which then does the appropriate thing (eg. open in webbrowser, download, etc).
The only usecase that doesn't work here is running apps via their desktop file (kate opens the file instead). But can't we hook into Qt.openUrlExternally somehow?
