sure, no problem.

i thought about that, and now with the extra diff approach it shouldn't be 
much of a problem. this could have been a solution for the other PATH issues 
as well, i think.

yes, he's right -- and that goes for all kde 4 apps, none of which are in the 
default search path in ubuntu 8.04. that is because e.g. /usr/bin/konqueror 
is the kde 3.5 binary, and /usr/lib/kde4/bin/konqueror is the kde 4.1 one. 
they probably started this because kde 4 was to be installed parallel mainly 
for testing purposes. and since there is still a kde 3.5 rkward, i think we 
should keep up to this scheme, even though it seems odd.

so, this not-in-path-installation is actually intended. it just leads to the 
need to patch the .desktop file, specifying the full path to rkward. the same 
goes for console. this way, one could have both rkwards at once -- but then i 
think we should rename the hardy package to rkward-kde4, shouldn't we? the 
konqeror package is called konqueror-kde4, to make that work, for instance.

> Else, should the rkward (and rkward.bin) perhaps be linked into /usr/bin/?

i dont know how that would comply with the way the ubuntu developers would 
like kde 4 apps to be included. with my patch the menu entry should work, if 
that could be confirmed somehow ;-)
