External applet is an applet which is implemented as a separate application. When your applet's launch button is pressed, control panel will start your application.
For this to work you will need a .desktop file for your application (like for any other control panel applet) and install it under "/usr/lib/duicontrolpanel".
The important key is that you will need to specify the application you want to start in the key "Exec".
See also Desktop file format for details.
Here is an example for the desktop file:
[Desktop Entry] # The "Type" is necessery for libcontentaction to be able to open the "plugin" # which is used by for example search: Type=Application Name=Example External Application X-logical-id=controlpanel_example_applet X-translation-catalog=examplecatalog # If this property is declared, and the applet is not loaded using the # X-DUIApplet-Applet property, the command will be executed when the # user activates the plugin in the control panel. # Exec=widgetsgallery [DCP] Category=Applications Order=3 WidgetType= Label
