Really? Bugger.
I tried dpkg -i rpm... but have put it off as it needed some upgrades
to some important libs. Didn't want to do hat yet as I have a Royal Society
of NSW Journal to get out by end of this month (all done in LaTeX on 
Deb/Linux) and I'm wary of upgarding libs when one has a deadline.

I'm not running testing or unstable so may have to come back to this
next month :-)

Thanks for all ya help.
