Comment 1 for bug 104511

I agree, this would be really handy to have. As it is, the JMF installer shell script doesn't work on Hardy:

Permit writing local files from an applet? (recommend no, see readme.html) [yes or no]
no
Unpacking...
tail: cannot open `+309' for reading: No such file or directory
Extracting...
./install.sfx.8592: 1: cannot open ==: No such file
./install.sfx.8592: 1: ==: not found

/bin/cp: cannot stat `JMF-2.1.1e/lib/jmf.properties': No such file or directory
Done.

I haven't figured out exactly what's wrong but it would be great if we could install this package the Debian way.
