does.  I do love the way that Linux normally lets _you_ choose what you want,
not the "owner" of the software. :-)


As it happens, I do have kappfinder.

Whilst the kappfinder window does not include anything like a "Help -> About" facility, for finding the version number, searching for kappfinder in Synaptic, shows (from the Properties -> Common tab) that the version number is 4:3.5.5a.dfsg.1-6etch2.

Unfortunately, I cannot use Copy and Paste, to copy information from the Properties -> Common facility in Synaptic.

I tried kappfinder, but, unfortunately, it did not find the application.

Perhaps, it is due to the categorizing of the games, within the KDE applications menu, and it was not sure which subcategory of Games, was applicable?
