You need to install these dependcies manually.

Slackware has a package managment, which does not resolve these dependencies automatically.

If you want this, choose a distro with a different package managment.

Instead of Chrome, you might consider Chromium, if you must.

There's a Slackbuild and AlienBob also has a package.
