fresh lxde packages for 13.37 and current, i486 and x86_64 with the latest updates from upstream.

- slackware-13.37
- slackware64-13.37
- slackware-current
- slackware64-current

notice that a new empty file is created, /etc/udev/rules.d/99-udisks-ntfs3g.rules.
this really shouldn't be empty , but maybe it's better this way so you can choose
if you want to force your desktop environment to automount your external ntfs drives and memories using the fuse ntfs-3g driver instead of the kernel one (preferred here), fill that file with this content
Code:
ENV{ID_FS_TYPE}=="ntfs", ENV{ID_FS_TYPE}="ntfs-3g"

ah, if you like, share some opinions if the above for you can be (like I think) a better default

Probably a better way to handle that is to make /sbin/mount.ntfs-3g symlink at /sbin/mount.ntfs -- then it "just works" without any changes on the user end. I think the ntfs-3g driver is stable enough at this point that it should be safe to do that.

There is a problem with /etc/lxdm/lxdm.conf.new that is part of the latest lxdm.Slackbuild @
https://github.com/Ponce/slackbuilds...nt/system/lxdm

Code:
PRGNAM=lxdm
VERSION=${VERSION:-0.4.1}
The new lxdm.conf wants to remove the correct location of lxdm-greeter-gtk and add an incorrect one.

Code:
-greeter=/usr/libexec/lxdm-greeter-gtk
+
+## set this if you don't want to put xauth file at ~/.Xauthority
+# xauth_path=/tmp
+
+## greeter used to welcome the user
+greeter=/usr/local/libexec/lxdm-greeter-gtk

Yet,

Code:
[lxde@slackware-x86 ~]$ ls -al /usr/libexec/lxdm-greeter-gtk
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 48844 Sep 30 18:36 /usr/libexec/lxdm-greeter-gtk
[lxde@slackware-x86 ~]$ ls -al /usr/local/libexec/lxdm-greeter-gtk
ls: cannot access /usr/local/libexec/lxdm-greeter-gtk: No such file or directory
If you overwrite the old config file with the /etc/lxdm/lxdm.conf.new, then on boot you are greeted with a blank screen.

I think that path has been hardcoded by some commit by the lxde devs in the new lxdm sources, so will be better to report the thing upstream.
BTW, I'm gonna patch it soon in the slackbuild on github, as I return from holidays (it's hard to do it by cell phone), just wait a little.

Not a big deal, just a matter of not blindly overwriting the .config with the .config.new.

Just navigate a bit and you will discover them.

http://ponce.cc/slackware/slackware64-14.0/lxde/

goodies for slackware64-14.0
------------------------------------

read disclaimer first: http://slackware.ponce.cc/blog/about/

- ./packages
the packages use on my installations

- ./lxde
packages for a full LXDE desktop.

- ./qt-desktop
packages for a full Qt-Desktop as seen by the Razor-qt developers: see
https://github.com/Razor-qt/razor-qt...y-applications

everything is built on a fresh installed slackware64-14.0 with sbopkg
using a forked version of the slackbuilds.org git repo.

http://github.com/Ponce/slackbuilds

you can check for dependencies on slackbuilds.org if you need single packages,
but all you need besides a current full default installation should be
already in this folders

(latest global rebuild 29 september 2012)

- - -

- ./testing
some testing stuff

- ./32bit-stuff
some 32bit packages that I use on slackware64-14.0
