The stock debian was 2007. I've installed texlive 2009 in /usr/local/texlive/...

Great. Now, Ctrl+Click take me from source to pdf, and Right click +
Jump to Source goes the other way. This is how it is supposed to work,

One more question:
Is this texlive 2009 compilable on RedHat EL 5.3 (or 5.4)? I would
guess that the Texworks is not because it depends on Qt 4.5 whereas
RHEL has qt 3.x!
