Thanks for the Link, will have a look at it.

Spectacle can take screenshots with or without mouse cursor on it. In the X11 
implementation the cursor image is added as part of post processing to the 
screenshot. With Wayland you have to request the screenshot from the Compositor 
and while making the DBus call you have to say if you want the screenshot to 
include the mouse cursor or not. What I would need is the mouse cursor as a 
separate image.

There are no applications "for KDE", but KDE being a community, there are only
applications "by KDE".

The process for joining is:

I don't have a Wayland session so I can't check, but can't Spectacle do it?
