There was a very useful tool named RMT-installer to create rpm, Debian and Slackware packages in the past. Unfortunately it cannot be downloaded anymore. Moreover, because of a bash bug concerning the filter grep, it does not work on new systems. I modified the code and added some new functions to it.

You need to install the Kommander (1.1) before:


(it is the part of the kdewebdev3 package on SUSE),

and the checkinstall utility:


The general rpm, Debian and Slackware package includes a service menu, so you can start it from the KDE context menu (section Actions).

It was successfully tested on the following systems:
SUSE 9.1, 10 and SLED 10


- Improve the check function before checkinstall.

Known bugs:

- Time stamp problems (during checkinstall) may be present on old rpm based systems. Solution: Do make install before checkinstall.


Changelog for 2.7:

- Start from K-menu has been fixed.
- The error detection after compilation is complete.
- Sound effects added.
- Simplified checkinstall/debhelper frontend.
- New buttons: Make clean, remove the directory debian/ from the source.

Changelog for 2.6:

- Real support for Debian via debhelper. (Package dependencies and md5sums are calculated, doc files are in the right directory.)
- Default values displayed in comboboxes are more optimized for your system.
- A little bug in the code for building packages from statically compiled Qt binaries is fixed.

Changelog for 2.5:

- Start python configuration script, if it is present.
- Automatically rename source directory if it does not follow certain basic rules.

Changelog for 2.4:

- Support for packaging statically compiled qt applications.
- Autofill for the configure option --prefix=directory, depending on the system.
- View config.log.
- Cleanup after package creation.

Changelog for 2.3:

In this version of Package Wizard heavy modifications were made for the sake of SUSE 10.1. If the version before 2.3 worked well but the version 2.3 does not, please notify me!

- Simplified checkinstall frontend
- The last way to fix SUSE 10.1 "unkown function" problem
- A correction for SUSE cache/swap handling problem

Changelog for 2.2:

- You can define and use an alternative for the compiler and Qt.

Changelog for 2.1:

- Automated database handling for package description files. (The Load, Store and SAVE problems on the page for package description on SUSE is eliminated.)
- After 'make -f mMakefile.cvs', the file list display is refreshed.

Changelog for 2.0b2:

- Fix for Slackware (K menu icon and context menu item)
- Better detection for checkinstall

Changelog for 2.0b:

- A display for the installed and default cpp/gcc, qt, rpm, dpkg, makepkg and alien.
- Include qmake function.
- Integrated output konsoles.
- Integrated texteditor to create package description files.
- Local stock for package description files.
- Automated checkinstall run.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
