If you look, kuickshow hasn't been updated since 8/16/2001. Hence the
reason it's no longer in *Ubuntu.
Mandriva keeps packages around for years and years, even after being
unmaintained and they rebuild them against a newer KDE/Gnome or whatever. I
know this well since I ran the distro for 4+ years and still build packages
for the distro. It's crazy, but it's true. kuickshow is a goner in most
With kind regards,
