[edit] Proposed API

  • Handler(QString filename) Creates a bundler that operates on the given package. Note that the package needs to be unpacked somewhere first, so operating on a dir is much faster
  • Handler(KUrl dir) Creates a bundler that operates on the given directory.
  • Handler(QString packageName, QString packageVersion) Creates a bundler that operates on the package already installed in the standard way.
  • install() Extracts (installs) the package, and puts the .desktop file in $KDEHOME/services/. See here for more informations.


  • initLayout() Initializes the layout app-wise. It should be called only once. It will use KStandardDirs::saveLocation() to create needed dirs. See the layout section for more informations.
  • installDesktopFile() Obsoleted by install()?
  • bool isInstalled() True if the package is already installed, false otherwise
  • QFile packageFile() Returns a QFile pointing to the zipped package.
  • QDir packageDir() Returns an (absolute) QDir pointing to the folder of the installed package.
  • ...
