Need GNOME binary


Where should I get a binary distribution of GNOME? I found looks a good one, but it claims on the web site it supports only 13.37. How about 14.0 then?

You can have MATE 1.6 for Slackware 14.0 which is fork of GNOME 2

Your choices are MateSlackBuild (already mentioned), Dropline GNOME, and Salix's MATE packages (which are available for 14.0 on their FTP sites).

Here are the support threads for the other two:

Thanks for the information. I will try MATE first. Hope it can help my dropbox running issue.

Also it should be noted that the MATE SlackBuild project now has binary packages for Slackware 14.0.
