Please create a symlink from /xfp to ~/f-prot/usr then it should work. Probably you are not running from Live CD and thus don't have root privileges, this is why klik wasn't able to do that for you. You need to do:

ln -s ~/f-prot/usr /xfp

Alternatively, you can add your user to the "sudoers" file.

If you have created the symlink by hand, then you can remove the parts from the wrapper script where the symlink is created (and, in the end, deleted). No more errors!
