tell it to go ahead even it has a bad signature IF you trust whoever pakcaged the rpm - e.g. plf and texstar are definitely ok.

welcome to dependency hell look for a package that provides wxGTK and install that. If it tells you that you need something else, install that too...

Actually, go to
http://plf.zarb.org/~nanardon/urpmiweb.php
add contrib, plf and texstar as urpmi sources - the instructions are on the site - then use mandrake's software management software to install the packages. It should make like a lot easier dealing with dependencies.

it's not in the menus? log out and see if that helps. It sometimes takes a while for things to appear in the menu.
