Installed on newest Phoenix got error;[polack@localhost ~]$ skippy
WARNING: Couldn't load config file '/home/polack/.skippyrc'.
Obvious, because the file doesn't exist. Ran the following;[polack@localhost ~]$ rpm -ql skippy
This, being rather sparse, offered only one clue, so ran;[polack@localhost ~]$ cat /usr/share/doc/skippy-0.5.0/skippyrc-default
# Copy this to ~/.skippyrc and edit it to your liking

The first line makes the next step obvious. This could be done automatically when installing the package.[polack@localhost ~]$ cp /usr/share/doc/skippy-0.5.0/skippyrc-default ~/.skippyrc[polack@localhost ~]$ skippy
Opened two more windows, pressed F11, and see this;
Clicking whichever window i choose brings it to the forefront; in this case it's Searchmonkey.
...or Dictionary, if I prefer.
The application works as described. The package is not broken, but it could use a bit of post install file copying, with the addition of a little scripting. Having a menu entry would also be nice.
Oh yeah, the Dictionary works fine too.
