Issue 185: XMonad.Config.Gnome

Comment #3 by YitzGale:

That works magically for me, without setting anything,
on my Debian KDE system. I don't know why.

On KDE, that will be "dcop kdesktop default popupExecuteCommand"

Yes. The command "dcop ksmserver default logout 0 -1 -1"
rudely ends the KDE session without confirmation, most
similarly to the default mod-shift-q behavior. But a more
KDE-friendly binding would be to run
"dcop kdesktop default logout", which pops up the usual
KDE dialog to choose between logout user, reboot,
system shutdown, or cancel.

There recently has been talk about being able to
configure the KDE Pager to work with xmonad -
to switch desktops, and to focus a window. But
I don't know how to do that.
