Slackware 13 GUI package manager


Hello,

I'm after a GUI package manager for Slackware 13. I haven't found it pre-installed. Does anyone know a good one?

Thanks

As far as I know, most slackware users are happy managing packages using CLI.
I know that there's slapt-get which has a GUI front-end.

A quick google tells that you need to install slapt-get first (command line manager)
and then install slapt-gui via slapt-get.

This is not a part of official Slackware release so I don't know how stable it is. I used it
some time ago for a few hours.

slapt-get works just fine but I'm getting an error when I start slapt-gui.

slapt-gui: error while loading shared libraries: libgdk_pixbuf.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I'm running xfce4, just in case it makes a difference.

Thanks

I'm guessing you're missing a library. You might want to double check the dependencies listed on the slapt-get site to make sure you've got them all installed.

I think this is what you need, your missing library is part of this:

That looks like one of the KDE libraries. Did you do a full install of Slackware?

Yes I did but I'm using xfce4. Can I run a KDE application under XFCE4 anyway? I think it shoudn't be a problem.

Yeah, KDE apps should be able to run under XFCE without a problem (I frequently run them under Fluxbox) provided all the necessary libraries are installed. You might want to check your installed KDE packages vs. what should be there and see if anything got missed during the install. You also might try running ldconfig as root to see if for some odd reason all your libraries aren't available.
