Imagine a .rpm or .deb that you can run directly without installing it: that's .cmg

The advantages are numerous:
* No more software installations
* One single .cmg file per application
* Total transparency about what is installed where (one .cmg file per app)
* You can store .cmg files where you want (HD, USB stick, CD-ROM, DVD) and run them from there
* Efficient use of storage space due to .cmg compression (saves 50%)
* No possibility to destroy anything (all is contained in a read-only .cmg file)
* Easy to give an application to a friend (just mail one .cmg file)
* Easy to keep your additional applications if you upgrade or change the base Operating System or move to another machine
* Makes it possible to run additional applications on Live CDs such as Knoppix or Kanotix
* If something doesn't work, simply remove one .cmg file and everything is reverted
* No need to be root in order to run new software

The hard part about .cmg compressed application images is to create them. There are thousands of applications out there that need to be repackaged as .cmg files. Fortunately, there is an advanced technology available that can automate this process: klik.

klik is the KDE-based Live Installer for Knoppix, Kanotix and mepis. From the point-and-klik software store, you can install applications simply with a klik (even without the need for a hard disk).

klik is great.

It's working even on my gentoo, i've run realplayer, lphoto and a bunch of other apps by simply clicking on a link!

I'm recommending it to everybody and really hope all the ideas to improve it come true... a .app appfile that integrates with my desktop would be just too cool

Seriously, there's no single reason i can find not to love this project :-)

 not on desktop

I'd love to see another klik install behaviour:

Currently klik installs applications to Desktop. So you have a desktop entry .cmg with a non-changeable icon.

I always move the klik application from my desktop to ~/klik and then make a url link to it on my desktop. That way I can get rid of the .cmg ending on my desktop and can give the application a nice icon.

It would be great if that would be the default or at least configurable behaviour.

Want excellent hardware recognition and an easy way to install Debian Sid? Get KANOTIX!

This is possible by using a (unsupported) configuration file: http://klik.atekon.de/wiki/index.php/Configuration_file

I never really cared about klik, it sounded just... too easy. However, today I visited http://klik.atekon.de/ and thought "Why not try it out?".

I did the installtion - omg, first good impression. No trouble at all, easy and fast. This is how it should be!
Tried to download a game. Nope, dependencies problems right? Whoa! The game started without a problem. It's just fantastic!

The only thing that I dislike is the desktop thing. It's ok to have as default, but I want them to go elsewhere. I tried to create the alterantive configure file, but it doesn't seem to work. :/

located at ~/~/.klikrc
# Sample ~/.klikrc file
# This is optional and not needed by most users

# The following line makes klik save cmg files
# in another directory instead of the default (desktop)
export DESTINATION=$HOME/Program/klik

I have just made a supid mistake somewhere, right? Please tell me where. And thanks for this awesome... thing.

"located at ~/~/.klikrc"

It should of course be "~/.klikrc".

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.
