Yes. The question I assumed was about the latest version (1.1) as there
are debs already available for the others.
Actually, I left off the smilee in my note as well. I had taken a quick

directory, and actually tried to build it.
Heh. I took another look afterwards and realized my mistake. ;)
Anyway, a checkinstall deb worked out fine for the time being to satisfy
