Description:

Mangonel, a simple application launcher for KDE4.Mangonel is intended as a light weight replacement for the, in my view bloated and slow, standard KRunner. Sadly you can't actually get rid of KRunner because it's also responsible for your screensaver and power-management.
Mangonel currently lets you do these things.Start applications in the KDE menu.Opening files and directories with their default application.Execute shell commands, including arguments.Use it as a calculator.

The default global shortcut to show Mangonel is `CTR+ALT+Space`, you can change this in the KDE4 system settings.

Mangonel came to be because I started to really mis Katapult. I loved Katapult for its simplicity and speed. Those are two points I really can't find in KRunner.

Soon Mangonel will be available in an ubuntu PPA.
Changes:
* Added a configuration dialog. The global shortcut is now configurable from inside Mangonel.

Thank you for your feedback and testing.

Mangonel is now capable of receiving composed characters. This is also important for users of languages that use accents.

Apparently this member function is only available in Qt 4.7 and later. I replaced it with a standard time function.

If I'm not mistaken it should now compile with Qt4.5 and up, although I'm not sure which KDE version is required.
