It is in the works. It is actually quite trivial. I have done office, dtp,
effects, midi, mixers, and synths so far. I can include things that are
not on the ubuntu repos and if the user adds the PPA that goes with them
they will work after that. For example, I have included non-mixer in the
mixers, but it doesn't show up right now. However if the user adds the
kxstudio ppa, it will.

Please send me a list of applications it might be useful to add this way.
(I already will add kritta) I need the exact name of the package.

Anyone else can send package names too please.
