I know there is a command line option, but why there is a gui option for .deb I right click and not one for .rpm, just show me how to do it and I will go my merry way.

Sorry. I didn't really read your post correctly.

1) Open file manager
2) Edit / Configure custom actions

Now to see how to enter the correct syntax
3) Select deb2xzm
4) Click edit button on right
5) Analyze the commands
6) Create a new action for rpm2xzm

The script for this is at: /opt/porteus-scripts/context-menu/convert_rpm
