[tim suspishus ~]$ smoltGui
bash: smoltGui: command not found

[tim suspishus ~]$ locate -i smoltgui
/usr/share/smolt/client/smoltGui.py
/usr/share/smolt/client/smoltGui.pyc
/usr/share/smolt/client/smoltGui.pyo

If there's a way to make use of that, I don't know what the trick is.
There's no man file, the README has the usual scant information about
something but nothing useful about using it, and the wiki only had
information about using a wiki.

I'd already added my system to it during the OS install, but the notion
of a GUI for it intrigued me.   The website is incredibly slow to
respond, at the moment.  And the options for marking what works, or
doesn't work, leaves me wanting a "works partially, and I can't
configure anything for it" option.

e.g. I have a multi-card reader, only the SD (Secure Digital) part of it
works, that I can test.  There's nothing I can do about configuration.
I can't really say it "just works."  While the SD side of it does (just
works, no action on my behalf was taken to make it work), the other part
doesn't.

It might help if the wiki page also had a link to the smolt stats page.
If there is one, I didn't spot it.  I spent quite a bit of time trying
to ascertain whether smolts.org was official, expecting smolt.org, and
wondering whether it might be yet another of the scams on the net with
similar names.
