Description:

Trigger the Present Windows desktop effect's shortcut with a click.

It essentially runs the following command on click.
qdbus org.kde.kglobalaccel /component/kwin invokeShortcut "ExposeAll"

You can also configure it to toggle the desktop grid.

v5 has a Unity 7 style so that it looks better with the Unity Ambiance desktop theme.
Last changelog:

v8 - September 16 2018 1 year ago

* Show preset values for the 22px and 16px icon in the config icon dropdown menu.
* Fix the Desktop Effect toggle buttons not persisting accross reboots (Issue #1).

Good but the icon does not have auto-antialias applied.

I'm not sure what you mean? Is the "windows like icon" it blurry or the "Unity 7" style?
Are you using a large panel? Or are you using a HiDPI screen?

Maybe I need to use SvgItem.smooth? I don't think normal icons use smooth though.
Or wait, IconItem DOES use smooth by default, while SvgItem does NOT use it by default. Interesting.

The standard icon you put does not need antialias coz it's only squares, but if ye try to change icon (something that's not only squares), you'll notice there is no smoothness.

Does it look better in v7?

Seems that the antialias now works with icons that are in the icon set but not with icons that are in my home folder, but this is fine, i just need to add the icons in the icon set.

Great Job! It works great on Fedora 26 + KDE Plasma 10.
But sometimes If I try to click the button with the opened windows it does do nothing. It happened only a few times.

I have Linux Mint KDE 18.2. It happens that the program works correctly but always when I log in I must activate it manually from the options: Present Windows Efect, and, Show Desktop Grid Effect. Is there any way to fix it? Thanks. Sorry my poor english.

If its already checked in the system settings > uncheck it > hit apply > check it > hit apply before rebooting.

[SOLVED] I just had to activate the services from the KDE setting: Present Windows, and, Show Desktop Grid. And then activate from the setting of your widget and is active every time when restarting the system. Thanks.

Hmmm. Is it persistent if you enable the effect via System Settings > Desktop Behaviour > Desktop Effects? Maybe my checkboxes are doing something incorrect.

Could you add an option for Desktop Grid with the command "qdbus org.kde.kglobalaccel /component/kwin org.kde.kglobalaccel.Component.invokeShortcut ShowDesktopGrid"
