I will redo and upload. I have this problem some time ago. Has to do with modifying the file after compressing it.

Don't use it!
It will brake kicker, the new package will not work....
If you have already installed
Remove this package, and then
sudo apt-get --reinstall install kicker

Thanks for sharing, but why do you still publish the old pixmap based version ?

Any chance of getting the latest version ?

That would be very cool, thanks and keep up the good work.

That's the svn of the old pixmap version:

svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/branches/work/suse_kickoff/

the new qt version is here:

svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/branches/work/suse_kickoff_qstyle/

After you have the experience to build this package, are you interested to provide a deb file for this one too ?

That would be cool.

Can you provide a changelog on what you updated? What is the difference from this to the one in 3v1n0's repository (http://3v1n0.tuxfamily.org/dists/edgy/3v1n0/index.html) ?

Looks nice, but seems to have a bug when there are two kicker panels, for example on two monitors. The second panel has no icon.

Uninstallation is also a bit tricky.
It replaces kicker, which then doesn't want to be removed. I'm sure there must be a better way round it.

Should anyone need to uninstall it, the approach I found worked is:
sudo dpkg --force all -r kicker
sudo apt-get install kicker
