Make KDE Plasma Activities work for you!

KDE Plasma “Activities” are a great idea. The idea is that you can collect a number of applications and files in a group, present them together, and not be distracted by a host of other objects irrelevant to that Activity.
They are a superset of “Desktops”,in that they can contain a number of Desktop configurations.

We define a number of different activities with a nickname and keyboard shortcut, create the activities, and populate each Activity with a shell script stack and control the individual application instances with the KDE Window Rules system settings.
