[solved] slapt-get and gslapt not working


Hi All,

Yes, I'm new to slackware. When trying to run slapt-get or gslapt I get:
bash-3.1# gslapt
bash: /usr/sbin/gslapt: No such file or directory
bash-3.1#

or

bash-3.1# slapt-get
bash: /usr/sbin/slapt-get: No such file or directory
bash-3.1#

when I look in /usr/sbin the programs are indeed there.

This is a clean install using the fluxbox desktop.

Any clues would be greatly appreciated.

run ls -l in those directories and see if they have the executable flag on them. If they don't add them with

Code:
chmod +x gslapt

thanks for reply,

here is the relevant output:

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 192146 2009-09-20 10:37 gslapt

and

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 85684 2009-09-20 10:34 slapt-get

I don't know what this means but the xfe file browser says that they are executable.

I used slackfind.net to get the files and then installed with installpkg. Is there a better way to do this?

slapt-get and gslapt are a little buggy. I usually use slackbuilds.org or packages made specifically for slackware.

I'm looking for fluxbox-generate-menu or menumaker and I don't see either one in sbopkg.

Well I got them working by doing a clean install and installing everything except kde. I must have been missing something before, but I still haven't found menumaker or fluxbox-generate-menu. I know how to edit the menu by hand but there are alot of apps on my system and I would much rather use one of the above programs than spend hours doing it by hand.

Okay, forget the whole thing. It turns out that fluxbox-generate-menu is already included with fluxbox.

Thanks All
