I installed Makulu to the disk and everything is working good, but when running Device driver manager, I get the following error,

DDM cannot run in a live environment

 

To force start, use the --force argument

Understand that DDM can be run with force option, what I was unable to grasp is that why is DDM refering to live install when makulu is install on the disk.

You will have to take that up with the developers of the app, clearly its not detecting live and non live environment correctly. ive encountered this problem quite a few times before, seems to be a common problem with DDM, in past the solution was to edit the menu entry for the app to ddm --force so when you launch it from menu it always runs. i thought i had done this in the KDE edition. I will make sure its fixed in next version.
