 :( There were problems with the permissions originally, so I had to do things in a roundabout way - download to my system, then upload direct to the repo. Looks as though I've not managed to fix the permission problem in the process.

I'll see what else I can do, but it will probably require killing the package and redoing it. I'll announce it again when (if) I can sort it out.....

Don't worry - looks as though I've managed to sort the permissions. Well, I've been able to install it using Gslapt, so hopefully it should be ok now

If anyone is till having problems, please post and we'll have another look at it.

Seems to work ok. On a non-KDE system, the help doesn't work. Also, I'm not getting an icon in the Xfce menu - no /usr/share/pixmaps in the package.
