Hi :)

nice to see live in this project. OK, here come some bugs seen with  
rkward_0.5.0c-test2-1_i386.deb under ubuntu 8.10 (intrepid) with KDE 4.2.1 and 
R 2.7.1-2 (that's the Version in the official uuntu repositories for Intrepid.).  
The same bugs occur with rkward from the ubuntu repositories.

The first is the missing plugins error, rendering rkward unusable. I described 
it in more detail here: 

The rkward package from the ubuntu repositories has the all.pluginmap and stuff 
in '/usr/share/apps/rkward' (at least in intrepid and jaunty, which are both 
kde4 only) while your version puts it to 
'/usr/lib/kde4/share/kde4/apps/rkward/all.pluginmap'. Symlinking resolves that 
issue, but another bug raises its ugly head. >:)

Now the editor is missing, along with the option to create or open a script 
file. As I mentioned a few days ago here 
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/rkward/+bug/272527/comments/15 the 
same issue comes with the ubuntu repositorie version of rkward (also in jaunty 
64bit), but a svn built works fine (tested that only in jaunty 64bit, till 
now), so it is probably a packaging issue.

Oh and there is no RKWard-Icon. :)

Cheers Dirk

p.s. And thanks for the software it was a real help during my thesis.
