Resurrect show tooltips option

Summary

In KDE 4, there was a very handy option to disable decoration tooltips.
Decoration tooltips were lost in transition to KDE Plasma 5, and so
the option.

Given that decoration tooltips were brought back to KDE Plasma 5, "Show
decoration button tooltips" option can be still useful for people(like me)
who may wish to disable them because of personal preference.

+1, I find these really annoying and want to turn them off.

Could this say, "Show titlebar button tooltips"?

Edit checkbox label.


I'm not sure whether DecorationBridge is the right place to store ShowToolTips
option. I would prefer to keep it in DecorationSettings, but on the other hand,
this option would be useless for decoration plugins.

Hmm, I just built KWin from git master, and this doesn't seem to work for me:

Can you post kwinrc?

Just to be sure, did you restart kwin?

I did not. Upon restarting it, the tooltips are now gone, yay!

So I guess we just need to have that happen without requiring a restart now.

Well, you don't have to restart the compositor each time you enable/disable tooltips, it should just work. On my machine it works as expected.

Ah, I get it now. Never mind, nothing to see here...
