I came to this thread trough google as I was looking for some help in installing conky.
I downloaded the package and sources from slackbuilds.
When I came to compile (./conky.slackbuild)
I was stopped cause I had to install first imlib2
When I installed imlib2 and rerun the compile
I was stopped cause I had to install lua
When I installed lua and rerun compile
I was stopped cause I had to install tolua++
During installation I had an error ...
So I stopped, but I still want to install conky in my slackware current, and I'm wondering if there is a package (*.tgz) already compiled for slackware current, that I can install with 'installpkg' ?
