You can use deb2tgz to convert the debian package to a slackware package.

Are you referring to workrave? It's not very widely spread yet. There are packages for debian and mandrake, as far as I know. The source should be available from sourceforge.

I've always had a very hard time compiling it, since it uses bleeding edge libraries (debian-unstable), which somehow never are included in my distribution. But the authors are very responsive, and you are welcome to contribute a package :-)

Groetjes,

Kees-Jan

i've installed gleave. it works fine and the usage is almost the same of leave (i've tied it in a fedora installation).
it's great if you don't want to be late. ;-)
