    Default What command to launch a kde plasmoid and the kickstart menu

    Can someone please educate me on how to launch plasmoids with a command? I am trying to make a launcher for cairo-dock or glx-dock for some plasmoids but I have no idea how they get launched.
    I would also like to know if there is a command to launch the kickstart menu.

    An example of what I want to do, I would like to launch AppMenu QML from an icon on Cairo-Dock or a Calendar plasmoid.
    Kernel: 4.12.14-lp150.12.7-default x86_64 bits:
    64 Desktop: Gnome 3.26.2
    Distro: openSUSE Leap 15.0

    One method I'm aware of on a standard KDE install to "launch" a plasmoid is "plasma-windowed".

    For the Kickoff-menu:
    Code:
    plasma-windowed launcher
    For the calendar:
    Code:
    plasma-windowed calendar
    Then there's also "plasmoidviewer" (available in KDE:Extra), but I haven't had a look on that yet.

    Does this Development/Tutorials/Plasma/GettingStarted - KDE TechBase help?

    What I did was
    Code:
    zypper in plasmoidviewer
    plasmoidviewer webcamoid
    and it displays the plasmoid in a window.
