Hi there!
I'm in the gray area made by people familiar with GNU/Linux and still not so
confidet/experienced or willing to use the command line for everything.
I've found the gnome-system-tools a fantastic opportunity ti stick with the
Debian-like system and an invaluable alternative to the YaST or Mandrake
Control Center. Managing from one interface the networks, the daemons and
stuff like that is inavaluable to me.

Now I've seen that on my Ubuntu box the package is installed, but whenever I
try to launch it nothing happens.

So, do I have to re-install it? And how do I "get back" the features that Eric
have pointed out in his mail quoted above?

Thanks !
