Summary

This patch allows the user to run .desktop instead of opening it in the external editor.

As a .desktop file could lead to security issues (evil Exec=), KIO will warn the user when he tries to launch it from an unknown location (see XDG_DATA_DIRS), setting the file with executable bit if the user confirms.

An option could be to add a Konfigurator flag to warn the user (possibly doubling the dialogs).

FIXED: [ 394938 ] Can't run .desktop files
BUG: 394938

Test Plan

Compile and test, even in root mode

Thanks, Davide! The resulting code worked under Kubuntu 18.04 and Kubuntu 20.04, other people can do their checks. I attach some .desktop files:
