I also run squirrel under Kubuntu Lucid (Kubulucid ??). When I installed it
the installer created a menu entry for it. I subsequently added it to my
panel. I like squirrel for some tasks, the mysql query browser for others. I
also use acqua datastudio and ms sql enterprise manager running in a win 2000
VM. I find for designing tables the native tools work best.
