I did check that, it don't work like that, it has a small window with tabs on 
top with button arranged in the window, and when you click on the button it 
just "executes" the programs, they'll prbably run in another window because 
it's just excuting, I can't say that for sure, because when I click on a 
button, I either get a dialog box saying that the tool isn't installed or 
nothing happens...

Maybe later we can improve it so that it has an option to make it run in text 
only mode, probably using curses :)
