mozilla-firefox-langpack and mozilla-thunderbird-langpack would be very nice to have. I don't mind Slackware being not particularly l10n-friendly, but these two are a P*** I* T** A** to build. The more so since the Mozilla Foundation adopted their new update policy in order to increase their users' blood pressure. As a consequence, any "obsolete" XPI package simply disappears from the official servers after a few weeks, which makes maintenance quite difficult.

@kikinovak: Entièrement d'accord avec toi. Navigateur et logiciel de messagerie comptant parmi les applications les plus utilisées, je pense que cela pourrait beaucoup accroître l'audience de Slackware.

With NetworkManager now supported in KDE and XFCE, perhaps we could have 'wmsystemtray' so that nm-applet can be used in WindowMaker?
Not a big deal though, as the SlackBuild for 13.37 from SlackBuilds.org is easy to install and is working fine with my -current setup.

Something thats been annoying me for years..

when you click on a text box with the mouse, and start typing, and you look up to check the text but the cursor is right there on the word, and you have to move the mouse out of the way to see it.

This program makes the cursor invisible as soon as you start typing. Move the mouse, and the cursor becomes visible again.

(thanks to slackbuilds.org, the maintainer of the slackbuild, and of course the guys that made the program.)

I'd also suggest the Faenza icon theme:

http://tiheum.deviantart.com/art/Faenza-Icons-173323228

I'm using it on Slackware 13.37 with XFCE 4.8. Looks very professional, and it's also complete. Maybe it's not a bad idea to default XFCE to use that theme, since even XFCE's home page is sporting it proudly.

Faenza looks good in KDE, too.

How about the terminus fonts too while were about it. The larger sized console-fonts it includes are very useful to anyone with a high dpi monitor and ageing eyes. Be nice to have them added to the setconsolefont dialog.

While this may sound controversial...

I wouldn't mind seeing gmplayer being removed from the standard mplayer package, as well as the mplayerplug-in package in /extra, and the packages for gnome-mediaplayer and gecko-mediaplayer (both built for GCONF as it is offered and included in /extra) as well as any needed dependencies (xulrunner is the only added dependency) added in possibly in the /extras folder.
