    wlassistant doesn't install under Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex (8.10), because of dependency on kicker, which isn't part of Intrepid.  Is there a work-around or a plan to release a version for Intrepid?  I wouldn't want to live without wlassistant on my laptop.  Thanks.

      Hi.
      Thanks for the comment.
      Can you possibly override the dependency? I believe it is redundant -- you don't need kicker to run wlassistant.
      Let me know if you succeeded.

      It does install with

      dpkg --ignore-depends=kicker -i wlassistant_0.5.7-2_i386.deb

      Thanks.

        Good news. Does it just install or also *work*?

      I was also having problems with installing wlassistant under Intrepid but as Doug suggested using the command below installs fine and works perfectly.

      dpkg --ignore-depends=kicker -i wlassistant_0.5.7-2_i386.deb

      Thanks guys
