Never ever had any troubles with Automatix. Can you be more specific or is this just "hear say"? :wink:

Yes, you tell me. I once chatted with some Ubuntu folks on IRC and they got very agitated over it but refused to go into technical details, refused to tell me what exactly breaks. They sounded like Microsoft: "don't use it! don't use it! don't use it!" ... Yeah? Right. But I am still waiting for a detailed explanation what's supposed to break and how come I have not yet experienced any of those "catastrophic Automatix failures". As a matter of fact I'd really like to experience this so I can troubleshoot it and help those guys improve their nifty little program :D ... But so far I haven't seen Automatix break anything. Not on Mint, not on Ubuntu, not on Debian Etch. :wink:

I have a feeling it's the puristic non commercial point of view
that makes it "impossible" to include some codes that shows itself here

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
