I need to add app to my slackware 13.37 please advice


Hi Slackware community.
I started using slackware few months ago and I would like to know how can I add some applications.

First I would like to add a simple set of varies games, like FreeCell, Mines, Mahjongg, Soduko, etc.

Second I would like to add Transmission Torrent or a light weight torrent client other than the command line torrent client rtorrent

Third I would like to add LibreOffice

I have added some software in the past from the source but if there is a way to install them pre compiled in a binary way that will be good too.

I will appreciate all advices. Thank you

The games you mention are mostly available in the KDE package set of Slackware 13.37.

Here are links to ready-to-install packages for Slackware 13.37. These are for 32bit Slackware - if you are running 64bit Slackware then you'll have to look in the "pkg64" directory instead of the "pkg" directory, look closely at the URLs below and you'll notice the "/pkg/":

A good light-weight torrent client is qbittorrent: http://slackware.com/~alien/slackbui...486-1alien.tgz
The qbittorrent package needs another (the libtorrent-rasterbar library) in order to work: http://slackware.com/~alien/slackbui...486-1alien.tgz

A LibreOffice package for Slackware 13.37 is here (you can additionally pick one language pack in the same directory if your language is not english): http://slackware.com/~alien/slackbui...486-1alien.txz

All these packages can be installed using the installpkg command after you downloaded them (or use upgradepkg if you already had installed a previous version of a package).

Hello TroN-0074.
1. As far as i know the games that slackware has by default are these for the 64bit and here for the 32bit. The bsd games.
2. You can install the qbittorrent. Here you can choose pkg for 32bit and pkg64 for 64bit.
3. Here the same for libreoffice.

Generally binary packages you can find here, and also by this Italian site.

Thank you. I failed to mention I didnt install KDE when I first installed SlackWare so the only games I have are XBoard, XaoS, and eboard.
That is why I was looking for a set of games that I can use in my Xfce installation, I am running SlackWare 32 Bits.
Thank you for these suggestions

Maybe you could install kde? You don't actually have to use it as your desktop environment if you don't want to and it would enrich your xfce with a lot of the programs you are after.

You could then just edit your xfce menu accordingly.

Yes thank you.
I could install KDE but my root partition is only 10GB and my home partition is 30GB so as you can see Hard drive room is very limited for me and that is why I trimed down some stuff from the standard installation. I still have 5GB available in the root partition so I thought to add some apps but nothing fancy.

I appreciate all advices.

Slackbuilds.org has tranmission and alot of games. You can uses the builds directly or can use the excellent program sbopkg. Slackbuilds are one of. The best aspects of slackware.

You might look at the PySol Fan Club Edition. It includes Mahjongg games

how can I install the games from the DVD? I dont want to install the KDE libraries, so are there games with the GTK libraries? I am using Xfce as Desktop manager.
I will appreciate all advices.

I did a search in slackbuilds and I could not find AisleRiot, Mahjongg, Mines, Sudoku, Quadrapassel.
So I dont know what I am doing wrong.

These are pretty much the standard Gnome games, and I am looking for these because I am assuming they dont need the Qt libraries for a proper display.

* cough

If they're standard GNOME games, then they're part of GNOME. I'm sorry, but you want to install GNOME (or even just a small part of it, such as its games) but don't have enough space for another DE, you're out of luck.
