rjek: unfortunately my experience of trying to create ubuntu packages for ROX desktop was not great. I spent quite a lot of time experimenting trying to get complete .

So Dr Leonard, any chance of supporting ROX without Zero Install (yes Zero Install has some advantages but I think it might be hindering uptake compared to a standard distro package)

So it can be packaged in a distribution's common format (rpm, deb etc) So it doesn't check for updated versions outside of the distribution's common format. So it can be installed for all users of a system. So it can be installed in full (with all 'on demand' parts pre installed), so there isn't a need for network connection to get the help files etc)
