    that can filter them out....

    urpmi pan
    apt-get install pan
    or download from
    http://pan.rebelbase.com/
    Works on other desktops as well as Gnome

    apt or urpmi will take care of the gtk+ libs
    I always install both KDE & Gnome desktops,
    along with a few other fasties.

    It's mostly just GTK+ libs that are required.

    $ ldd /usr/bin/pan (summarised ...)
    libgtkspell, libpspell, libgtk-x11-2, libgdk-x11-2, libatk-1,
    libgdk_pixbuf-2, libm, libpangoxft-1, libpangox-1, libpango-1,
    libgobject-2, libgmodule-2, libdl, libglib-2, libxml2,
    libpthread, libz, libgthread-2, libgnet-2, , libc, libaspell,
    libstdc++, libgcc_s, libX11, libpangocairo-1, libcairo,
    libXext, libfontconfig, libXcursor, libpangoft2-1, libXft,
    libfreetype, libXrender, /lib/ld-linux, libresolv,
    libnsl, libpng12, libexpat.

    of course YMMV.

    Someone on another group that I frequent, recently raved about this
    program, so I bookmarked it for later. Probably shouldn't recommend a
    program that I haven't used, but it does look good-
