Description Will Stephenson 2012-09-24 21:28:55 UTC
Similar to https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=221881, but this fix removed only exact duplicates.

The 'run command' results of a search not be shown in kickoff by default; most searches are for apps that are in the app menu, and this results in hit sets like this
* Akregator (with Akregator icon)
* Run Akregator (with the generic gear icon)

Which is redundant and ugly.  Either hide the 'Run Akregator' hit when a service was found with the same command in its Exec field, or make showing command line hits optional.

IF the user does want to run a command line program, there is no option to run it in a terminal, so clicking the 'Run Akregator' hit should show the krunner run command dialog, expanded with 'run in terminal' checked.

It is now in Plasma 5.
