OK I will test it tonight after dinner...

I assume buttons = icons.  Isn't English a wonderful way to miscommunicate?

I have not used krunner (at least deliberately), I have used kstart,
if you haven't you might want to check it out...

I just checked and (at least in my packaging system), krunner is a
KDE4 app.  I don't have any of that on my system so I can't test it
But using a KDE4 app to start a Trinity binary might not give the
expected result...
