it looks great,moe. Only one remark: The menu entry icon- it doesnt have a transparent background! My guess is that you used the thumbnail instead of the original file!

Here is a xpm file for you to use:

or a png with correct alpha layer (transparent background)

I perticulary adore the slack-desc tool! It does its job great,and i dont have to worry about the description lenght or typos.So its easier to copy author's description. This is leaps ahead of what checkinstall had to offer. ::)

M0E-lnx, I used to create a package that already exists for VL 5.8 (tilda) and it worked great, so far no problems with the package made by vpackager.  I like the layout, it's definitely easy to use.  I really like the output terminal.  I'll let you know if I find any bugs, though others are probably better at identifying those than I am.
