Graphical User Interface for KRunner
QuickSand represents matches to a query as a scrolling line of icons. A completion box of matches is also shown when the matches first arrive. The list can be scrolled using the up and down arrow keys when the completion box is shown or the left and right arrow keys.
Displaying the interface of QuickSand is currently bound to the Alt+Space global shortcut. You can quit QuickSand by pressing Ctrl+Q while QuickSand is focused.
To obtain a different look, changing the Plasma theme will also change the appearance of the interface if the theme provides the necessary SVG files.

This is a stripped-down version of the app in my blog built specifically for KDE 4.1.x. I didn't have the time to test this branch much so I make no guarantees about application stability in KDE 4.1.x.
