I got these test instructions from Sune on IRC:

  what to test is: build the package, install it on a kde4.3 or 4.4
  environment (on the server), log into a client in kde, run the vaduz
  binary. plug in a usb stick. see if you get a notification. if no,
  then stop. if yes, click on 'open file manager'. close file
  manager. open kwrite. go to open file. see that the device is
  available in the 'places' on the left. unplug device. see it device
  disappear from 'places'.
  try add device again, see it in places
  log out.
  remove device.
  check if device still is in 'places'.

I've also try-tested without LTSP by creating /home/$user/foo, and got
a popup but selecting the file manager button did not work.

Happy hacking,
Petter Reinholdtsen
