A note to those who test kde apps building them from sources

if you encounter a problem with unfindable plugins like the one described here, the answer is simple: move fresh plugins to 'qt5' subfolder, e.g. /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/plugins instead of /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/plugins

we had this issue with ktorrent and solved it on a cmake level, but it seems that lots of other apps including kwin suffer from this as well
