Kubuntu Package Menu

Simple kde service menu for managing kubuntu (debian) packages.

UPDATE: My code was implemented into Kubuntu Breezy, in the kubuntu-default-settings package. You no longer need to install this package separately, unless you are running Hoary.

Based on the great Debian Service Menu at http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=16536

Actions included:
* Install Package
* Uninstall Package
* Show Package Info


$ sudo cp kubuntu-servicemenu.desktop \
$ sudo cp kubuntu-servicemenu.sh \

or simply download and install the Debian package. (Yes, I'm aware of the minor Catch-22 in that statement).

* Swedish translation (done!)
* Script rewrite for easier translations
* Alien (Convert RPM to DEB) option
* Show installed files option?


* Use mktemp instead of static tmp names (to enhance security)

* Created an alternate version which displays options on the "Action Menu"

* Removed "Show Installed Files" because it doesn't work; will reprogram and add it later (sorry for the quick rerelease)

* Initial Release

Changes from the Debian Service Menu:
* Moved to system-wide (more Kubuntu-like)
* Changed "debian" to "kubuntu" (I'm running Kubuntu, not Debian)
* Edited English entries to be more specific
* Removed "changelog" entries, which didn't seem to work in Kubuntu
* Removed deb Icon reference
* New screenshot

 Security issues

The shell script creates temporary files in a rather insecure way, unless I'm missing something (i.e. predictable filename, vulnerable to symlink attack).

mktemp is part of debianutils, an essential package, so will be present on all Kubuntu installations and can be used to fix this.

It will take me some time to figure out how to make the appropriate changes to use mktemp. If you could come up with some code too, that would probably be helpful.

I didn't realize the security threat, but I suppose it makes sense. First bug and first security flaw... dang!

I installed this package, and it works really great... I was wondering if you can help me find the wlassistant deb that you have sitting on your desktop?? I can see it in the PNG preview... KWiFi isn't good enough :)

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
