Description:

kdpkg is a frontend for dpkg. It helps you to install debian packages. It's similar to gdebi-kde but it has some advantages/differences:


* it's faster
* the installer function works
* it can handle conflicts
* no python dependencies

Will this be available again? For KDE SC 4.5? It was a very useful application.

One my computer the install function of Gedebi doesn't work for any package. Please try to install kdpkg with the dpkg command on the console.

python dependencies are not disavantages, why to systematically put them on the negative side? Your app have other dependencies, like a compiler or the KDE libs, and you don't speak about them.

You can save space and use the debian core tools (like dpkg and apt-get)

If you download the binary debian package you don't need the compiler. And if you have installed KDE you have the kde libs already installed.

But in general this point is not so important.

Hmm, not all linux users are on Debian, and for them python modules can be easily installed with apt. They don't take much space.

python-kde is also installed with KDE :-)

Yes, but this a program for debian and debian based distros.

>python-kde is also installed with KDE :-)

You can install kde without python-kde.

>They don't take much space.

Just the package python-kde needs 50mb. E.g. the distro sidux doesn't support python out of the box.

In addition imho it's an advantage to use the debian core tools.
