Did you know?
There is a frontend to pkgtools that aims at organizing Slackware's package collection. It's called QTGZManager and can be reached at: http://jtgzmanager.sf.net.
It's written in C++ and needs Qt4 4.4.x libraries. Very usefull and fast.
Hope you enjoy it.
I like it mostly.
It uses too large font sizes with 1600x1200 screen resolution (about 11-12 points while i have kde set to 8 points). Also there´s lot of wasted space between elements and around window border - call it GUI gastronomy ;).
I´d suggest also to implement a menu bar because it gives quick overview of the program features to user.
Downloads official Slackware patches just pressing “Ctrl+P”.
It has a config dialog box to change some options.
Sports some changes in the main interface: fonts, icons, style sheets and tooltips. Opens snapshot files, showing changes in installed packages since them.
And last but not least, supports the unofficial SPKG tool for package management (it is a faster pkgtool alternative written in C).

Hey! Here's my mockup for QtgzManager 2.0. :) Feel free to like it or
Your app has very nice features, i thought maybe this three column
layout can be further improved and that's what i came up with.
A minor grumble: why is current version forcing cleanlooks qt style over
system style? I commented out this snippet in main.cpp and qtgzmanager booted
fine with qtcurve style, except column widths were messed up. I'm no
programmer so excuse me if its purpose should be obvious.
I'm forcing cleanlooks just because it's the one that plays better with most WMs.
That's a pitty your prefered style qtcurve is messed up. To be honest I've never tried it.
By the way, your mockup looks promising.
Maybe you can join the project :-) What do you think?
Thanks for the tips.
