The installation may or may not completely work on RedHat type systems. But, you can convert the deb package to rpm using the following command (assumes you have navigated to the directory where you have the lxplan.deb file, you can also add the full path to that file instead)

Code: Select all

sudo alien -r --scripts lxplan.deb


You will end up with an rpm file in the same location as lxplan.deb.

After installing the rpm, if the desktop file does not work with your system's launcher, you can run lxplan from the terminal using this command:

Code: Select all

java -jar /usr/share/claudeheintzdesign-lxseries/LXPlan.jar %f

Better yet, ditch the proprietary installer formats.

"ar x lxplan.deb" will extract the comoonents, and "data.tar" will be everything you need.

Put it in place on your system as you see fit (easiest to just go to "/" and run "tar xvf data.tar", and you should be good.

In any case, it's running on my personal Slackware 14.2 based distro fine.
