XPenguinsApplet
Utilities
Description:

It aims to provide a handy frontend to manage xpenguins.

Obviously requires xpenguins (shiped in most distro or contrib) http://xpenguins.seul.org/

If no penguins appear on your desktop
after you hit the launch button, go in KDE Control Center/LookNFeel/Behavior
and make sure 'Allow programs in desktop window' is checked.


I'd be happy to get some feedback on the forum, so go ahead.

I've xpenguins installe in /usr, it's works well. Your applet is compiled, installed and aded to the panel, but i don't see it! I see only the applet's "hand".It doesn't depend on the installation method: both RPM and compiling give me the same result. What it means?

I ran ./configure with absolutely no problems. It then told me to run make.
So, I typed make.
I got this:
'make: *** No rule to make target `../config.status', needed by `Makefile'. Stop.
I tried running with -b and -k.. No luck... -k really freaks out:

[root@ddal0213 Applet]# make -k
make: *** No rule to make target `../config.status', needed by `Makefile'.
make: Failed to remake makefile `Makefile'.

Sorry for the long post... I'm sure there's some sort of rule about that, that I don't know.
