Indeed, .deb2tgz or whatever it's called, would prolly have been a good idea, had it occurred to me.

However, blinded by excitement over this thing, I instead installed Bazaar (some form of Debianesque repository-management thing, like GIT or whatever) after having installed some Python deps required by same, and then fiddled around with the "sourcecode" of this thing, which is a load of python mainly, before making some weird hybrid half-manual, half-src2pkg installation of clicompanion.

My installation is not proper, but I'm willing to work on that (this was a quick throw-together just to play with the thing); even so, my CLIcompanion works!

I stand by my initial judgement so far: looks like a good learning tool for CLI newbs.

But in the screenshot they use sudo for everything. Not the Debian way.

That's for the sake of the Ubuntuists. Every Linux howto on the web is aimed at Ubuntu nowadays.

LOL.. Look (under the quick-reply box) at all the curious Slackers peering into the funny thread.

They all secretly want to use Ubuntu, but they're afraid of losing their 1337 cred.

I can tell you in secret that I've never actually used Slackware. I run Ubuntu with a modified user agent.

Oh My, what horror is this? The only CLI tutorial you need is printed on dead trees.

LOL.. Dead Trees? What are those? Even my home is made of metal and plastic. :/
I went to the library the other day and there were no books - only iThings you could rent for a time.
