exrtools is a set of simple command line utilities for manipulating high dynamic range images in OpenEXR format. It was developed to help experiment with batch processing of HDR images for tone mapping. Each application is small and reasonably self-contained so that the source code may be of most value to others.

You are right, it would have been useful to touch on this subject. I have not seen many permissions problems across distributions, except for the directory in /var/run we create to place our FIFOs, much like screen would use (although it is an interesting exercise to see where screen's FIFOs are placed in different distributions). This directory should be group writable by any users that run tvtime, usually anyone that can access the /dev/video devices. Getting these permissions correct was another part of the packaging where we have found errors.

I did some research and discovered that there is an mdk-menu-messages package which contains internationalized text for many menu system strings. I did not know about this, thanks.
However, that doesn't really help the problem. This packages is specifically for Mandrake's own strings. This won't let you give many different strings for your application name or menu entry text in different languages without also going through that package. I don't believe this is practical for all applications to provide i18n'ified menu entries. I would like to hear your opinion on it.
The .desktop format is more flexible in that you can provide translations directly in the file provided by our package.
