I tried that tool, but it doesn't seem to work on stock FreeBSD
as expected. A precompiled package is available, "doas" is among
the required dependencies. After adjusting some files manually
according to the pkg-message, the program finally seems to run,
but it doesn't display anything for me. I'm using fvwm2 on a
Lenovo R61i laptop.

Maybe there is something else that needs to be installed or
configured in order to make this tool functioning? Or does it
integrate with KDE or Gnome exlusively?
