    This worked very well, thanks.

    Found the pretty icon here:

    place into:


    And don't forget to change the ownership of the jb.svg file:

    chown root:root /usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/apps/jb.svg
    The worlds misfortunes can be explained, quite simply, by acknowledging that the vast majority of its peoples suffer the debilitating effects of having Faecal Encephalopathy.

    When is the last time this was updated? Do these intructions still work? What's the best way to get this program?

    I haven't been having luck installing on anything from 9.10 on up; luckily I have prior installs that I've been able to update, though I still have to launch it from konsole.
    This application really needs the benefit of a "no-brainer" type installer for us poor geeklings with memory problems...

    On another note; the most recent install attempt on a 10.x machine resulted in a failed sun java install that really tossed a wrench into things.
    The dang "OK" input on the release acknowledgement was non-responsive, resulting in opening a real can of worms.
