There's a mail list for Installer: see the bottom of

Runw is only for Windows (where a console-less app
has a WinMain, not a main). If you don't have debugging
on, Installer won't write to stdout. 

If you don't use --onefile and you don't use the "f" option
(which forces LD_LIBRARY_PATH), you won't get a child
process (it's done with execvp, not fork, because I need
the environment re-scanned).

I don't run KDE, so I don't know what their requirements
are for a "KDE Link" (whatever that is).
