If you have ever manually installed an Application but grew tired of using the terminal to launch it this blog is for you.

I'll use BibleDesktop-1.6 as the Application/example.
I recently installed it and had to keep using the terminal to launch it.

cd /home/username/Directory/bibledesktop-1.6
Using nano just make the new file and desktop entry like this:

nano /home/username/.local/share/applications/bd.desktop

Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest stable kernel – 4.5!

Posted 03-17-2016 at 06:02 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have compiled a very useful (as I think) 64 bit kernel for Slackware Current (14.2) and/or all Slackware derivatives. For example Slax, Zenwalk and SlackEX. The kernel is compiled exactly the same way as Slackware’s latest kernel huge. “My” kernel 4.5-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 4.5 is the latest stable kernel available from Released 20160314.

What’s new in kernel 4.5?

kwrite "vi input mode" enabled accidentaly is quite annoying

For people who like myself, don't really get "vi", using nano or something like that when forced to use cli editors, if you're in kwrite (perhaps also kate) and all of a sudden it seems to behave...
