Thank you very much. Works well.

By the way, how to make a deb for my distro? Many apps from here comes with the source in an *.tar.gz. How to use this kind of apps?

Downloaded the .deb_64, converted to rpm with alien and installed on openSUSE 11.1. Works flawlessly.

I have been waiting for something like this for quite a while. I especially like the ability to lock the app with a password.

Please keep up the good work!

OK - Superb - but where is that rpm now?

Report

Well, I had the rpm on my computer, and after installation I deleted the rpm.

You can create your own rpm easily.
Download the .deb for your system.
Install the program called: "alien", then in the console got to the directory that holds your .deb and use this command:

alien --to-rpm your.deb

The whole process will take only about 2 minutes.

The only problem is that the .deb_64 seems to have gone missing.

Good luck!

Very nice but one problem:

waheela doesn't load any theme when started (just a white background) although themes are installed in usr/share/kde4/apps/waheela/themes. Also configure doesn't show a list with the installed themes and I cant choose the theme folder.

(Maybe a typo but it says "Version 0.1" in "about" window)

This problem should be solved with version 0.2.2

I had this problem and fixed it by copying the themes from /usr/local/share/kde4/apps/waheela to ~/.kde4/share/apps/waheela.
