I didn't make a menu entry file - I don't know how to do that. What I did, was create a softlink to the binary in /usr/bin. Then I created a menu entry using kmenuedit. To call up Slackpack, I use kdesu Slackpack to launch the app. This may be a bit crude, but it works for me.

I just installed slackpack 1.1.6. During installation it displays sloppy message with some warnings and errors at the end:

Code:

Pay attention to the way your installer interprets apostrophes:

I'm not the target of slackpack because I prefer command line or ncurses interfaces. Anyway thank you for your work.

I downloaded the source tarball this morning and ran qmake. It recognized the system as x86_64 and created a makefile accordingly. I only added -fpic to the clags thingys and issued make. Again, I simply ran the binary as root from my /home directory. It sprang to life and looks very nice.

However, I saw the create pkg from source icon and decided to give that a whirl. It does not work on a tarball itself, but only in the extracted tarball's folder. Even then, it failed to create a package, saying it could not output a package in the current directory. This still needs a bit of work. I didn't explore that any further.

In my opinion it'll be good idea to implement three functions in slackpack:

1. Possibility to run slackpack as regular user -- the program asks about root's password when user tries to install, update or remove packages.

2. Possibility of browse packages in Search Packages tab for files included in them.

3. Possibility of search packages tree for a package containing specific file.

Hi all,

I suggest a feature for Slackpack: Possibility of browse packages by series like: a, ap, d, kde, x, y...
