Hmm, how about installing from 13.0 packages? Not sure if that will work though.

rworkman packages is all I used. I also have it bookmarked, but I forgot that. AlienBob also has a lot of useful packages if you want to do another Google search. Don't forget to bookmark!

Robby Workman (rworkman) and Eric Hamleers (AlienBob) are both Slackware Contributors. These guys also go the extra mile in providing pre-built packages that may not come with stock Slackware. You will also see them here answering questions from the community.

In a sense, we that use Slackware are all contributors. By asking or answering questions, we contribute much to this community.

While search is a great tool. knowing at least somewhat what you are looking for is key. Sometimes, generic terms just won't get the job done. So ask away and don't be shy.
