If so, that's OK. I mean I did not fill all fields in deb's control file. There are some good fields to fill. It is not the same problem.

Problems is with height so 10" with its 600 pixels is worse then 640x480. Though it is not so important now. And I am not sure how to fix because width is given by constant and it affects appearance in some non-trivial ways.

Ok. I'll postpone menu shortcuts. So before .rpm there will no non-trivial things to do. Thanks! -- Regards, Aleksey Cherepanov
