[rkward-devel] RKWard 0.5.0c testing, ubuntu intrepid

I have tested this too, on a completely fresh ubuntu 8.10 desktop 32bit 
Gnome with standard R (2.8.1)
The deb package is generated without errors but a bunch of warnings 
(mostly compiler warning I think) that don't seem to influence functioning.

The deb-package installs without any problems.

I start it from console and there are no errors, menus appear to be 
working. Only, the icon is missing both from the menu and from the 
application switcher.

I have an extra laptop sitting around so I have set up a test machine 
with ubuntu 8.10, I could set up other configurations if you would like
