How can I assign the super key ( windows key ) to the show desktop action in Plasma 5.8
By default it shows the application launcher.

So far ksuperkey looks the only solution. The documentation says it is not necessary for plasma 5.8 but actually make the trick.
By default I have
Control + F12 assigned to show desktop action so I just need to:
ALT F1in the application launcher widget ( other wise super will also open this )
ksuperkey -e 'Super_L=Control_L|F12'
If it works you can add this to the startup application
