Current version: katapult-0.3.1

This is a very simple ebuild for katapult. Katapult is an application for KDE, written in C++, designed to allow faster access to applications, bookmarks, and other items. It is plugin-based, so it can launch anything that has a plugin for. Its display is driven by plugins as well, so its appearance is completely customizable. It was inspired by Quicksilver for OS X.
You can find more info here.

To use it:

  • Download the package
  • Check your /etc/make.conf and see what the value of your PORTDIR_OVERLAY variable is
  • Change to one of your ‘overlay’ directories and execute:
    tar zxvf /path/to/katapult.tar.gz
  • emerge katapult

Filed as Gentoo bug nr: 121721, seems it is a duplicate, and the ebuild already maintained by someone else… You can still use my ebuild, but I will not update it.
