No TarBall?

I was looking for Linux version of Google Desktop and when i browsed their site, i couldn't find any package that can be installed on Slackware. They only provide with RPM and DEB files, which is mainly used by Fedora, SuSE, Mandriva, and Debian/Ubuntu. I wish they provide a .bin (like in the Picasa) or probably the tarball. Perhaps the solution for now is waiting for someone in LinuxPackages to upload the packages or try to convert it using rpm2tgz, which i doubt will work in this case (i have used this utility to convert OOo and Opera and both of them worked well, but i haven't tried that in Google Desktop). Any experience of converting Google Desktop's RPM to TGZ?? If you do, please let me know big grin
