Is there the color-theme.el slackware package?

I'm running slackware 12.2. According to this site:

We recommend users to install color-theme using their respective distribution package manager.
Here are examples:
# Debian and derived
apt-get install emacs-goodies-el
# Gentoo
emerge color-theme
# Slackware via SBo
sbopkg -i color-theme-el
However, I can't find it there. Has it been dropped?

sbopkg uses the build scripts at to build and install packages. A search at does not reveal that it has ever been supported. I also can not find this package in the appropriate e/ section of official slackware packages. Perhaps they just assumed somebody had made build scripts for it.

If you have the time and the know how, you could contribute to the community by submitting a build script to

Just double check, Just because I couldn't find it doesn't mean you wont.
