As in the topic:
icons on panel and desktop dont execute programs when doubleclick option is activated in
To reporduce this bug follow this steps;
1. set option to "open files/folders with one click" in system settings->keyboard&mouse->mouse. (im translating name of this option from polish so it may not be accurate).
2. add a program icon into panel via kickoff.
3. click icon You added - > result progam is launched.
4. set option to "open files/folders with double click" in system settings->keyboard&mouse->mouse.
5. click icon You added - > result progam is launched.
6. remove added icon.
7. add this icon again.
8, click on the icon -> result progam is NOT launched.
Same situation appears with icons on "desktop".
I hope this helps and i hope there is no other bug report about it (i searched and didnt find anything)
hmmm, i see Object::connect: No such signal Plasma::Icon::doubleClicked()
Well now (4.0.0) when you have double click enabled and you double click a program icon, two instances of the program will pop up! (Basically, plasma seems to be ignoring the double click option now)
SVN commit 759525 by aseigo:
implement a doubleClicked signal.
i must admit that using signals that don't exist to implement needed features in applets is an inventive way to force me to implement stuff in libplasma ;)
M +7 -0 icon.cpp
M +9 -4 icon.h
M +2 -0 icon_p.h

Looks like I forgot to commit those changes. That must have been why it worked for me.
*** Bug 156217 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
this fix got into kde 4.0.1?
If not, will be in 4.0.2 or only 4.1?
kubuntu kde 4.0.1 : not fixed
Still not fixed on 4.0.1 openSUSE packages.
kubuntu kde 4.0.2 : not fixed
And I got to restart KDE to have the single click / double click applied.
Can we please have it backported to KDE4.0?
It is a VERY bad UI bug, both for having to restart the desktop to change mouse behavior as to double-click not working.
Currently I am not using any icon in the desktop because of this bug :-(
please vote to indicate that you hope to have this bug backported to 4.0.x.
Confirming not fixed in 4.0.2 (debian)

Untested backport to 4.0-branch
The patch above is a plain backport of the commit done with r759525 in trunk
back to the 4.0-branch.
1. download the patch
2. cd kdebase && patch -p0 < ThePatchFile.patch && recompile
Now we only would need someone who likes to test it and to verify that it
really does the job, hint, hint :)

Seems beside http://lists.kde.org/?l=kde-commits&m=120000775515531&w=2 there
was so much done between related to icons in trunk, that there are only a hand
full of lines that looks similar to how it was done in 4.0 :-/
Well, anyway. I double and tribble checked the backport and it should work
But still we would need someone who is motivate enough to try;
* if icon-doubleclicks really work now as expected AND
* if icon-singleclick still work like without that patch.
I've made a patched version of the debian package libplasma1. Double-click on the desktop works. I haven't test single-click yet. (Another bug says that one needs to restart KDE to transition between single- and double- click.)
Thanks for the double-click action at least!
single click works as it always has for me (i.e. not very well).
thank you very much CSights!
So, the fix got committed with r783906 to the 4.0-branch and will be available KDE 4.0.3 :-)
bug fixed but :
- Still got to restart kde to activate the new option
- Have to double click shortcuts icons on the panel too !!!
