I'm having a good time with Slackware; now that I've gotten the internet connection up thanks to the serialmonkey rt73-CVS driver.
I decided not to install KDE; I love KDE (keep reading) however I already have a main distro with KDE and do most everything in Slackware from the command line. I've been using Enlightenment DR17 and really like the look and feel. I have a bone to pick with Eterm, but that's another thread
However, there are a number of applications in KDE that I would like to have as conveniences, the big one being Amarok -- I like to listen to the tunes while I do my work -- doing serious work is what I got slackware for. Some of you have probably read about or taken part in my discussion of using a graphical login manager (tried XDM, tried qingy).
So, this morning I installed Amarok off CD #2 and I had to adjust my path to include /opt/kde/bin/, then it came up with a dependency problem; OF COURSE! it depends on the KDE libraries.
So, should I install KDE? How would I go about that? I tried
ls /mnt/cdrom/slackware/kde/|grep .+tgz\b -|installpkg -
and got "filename does not end in .tgz" HOw do I install the whole damn show?
Alternatively, could I just install the libraries? How do I get at those and which ones do I need?
Thanks for any suggestions,
