KDE is great and I use it whenever I can. I still use 2 Ubuntu machines at
time and only then do I realise how badly I need KDE with ever-changing
wallpapers and an infinite arsenal of supposedly 'hidden' features.
Here is how you can improve on what you do above:
* Install XBindKeys if it is not installed already
* Add to your .xbindkeys (or equiv. at different path) all your
frequently-used applications if not all that you ever use, e.g.
"konsole -T 'SuSE Linux - Penguins become Reptiles' &"
"kfmclient openProfile filemanagement &"
"kfmclient openProfile filepreview &"
* Assuming singleton, hitting CTRL+ALT+key (where key should be a good
mnemonic) will open your desired application in a snap. If it is minimised,
expect it to be maximised at speed of will.
PS - I think you miscomprehended the point of my previous post.
