This way, slackpkg+ will not try to "upgrade" the ktown packages to the official slackware kde packages.

I hope it is clearer now
The problem is that the package group "kde" does not cover all the packages that are in Ktown.

It doesn't have to.
Just has to cover the kde packages in the official repository.

Just add "kde" to the blacklist then issue "slackpkg search kde" and you will see your troubles are gone, unless I misunderstood the problem you were trying to fix.

But the packages in ktown /deps and /tools will be upgraded to stock distribution when you run slackpkg.

I added a bit of extra fluff to my ktown repository just now. Below the Slackware version directories ('13.37', '14.0' and soon again 'current') I have added a symlink which I guarantee points to the latest version of KDE which I have available for that Slackware release. I call that symlink 'latest'.

Now, if you are running Slackware 14.0 64-bit with multilib, use slackpkg+ and want to keep up to date with the latest KDE from 'ktown', yuo should mention 'ktown' in /etc/slackpkg/slackpkgplus.conf like this (at the moment, taper.alienbase.nl and alien.slackbook .org are the only repositories with the new file structure):
Code:
PKGS_PRIORITY=( multilib:.* ktown:.* restricted:vlc )
REPOPLUS=( slackpkgplus ktown multilib alienbob restricted )
MIRRORPLUS['ktown']=http://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/alien-kde/14.0/latest/x86_64/
... and then run "slackpkg update" you will be able to upgrade to the latest KDE, and the deps will be upgraded too.

For 32-bit Slackware 13.37 and if you do not care about vlc, that would become:
Code:
PKGS_PRIORITY=( ktown:.* )
REPOPLUS=( slackpkgplus ktown alienbob restricted )
MIRRORPLUS['ktown']=http://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/alien-kde/13.37/latest/x86/
Try it! Give me your feedback.

I think in http://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/al...latest/x86_64/ GPG key is missing. Everything else works well.

It works great!
Thanks Eric!

I updated KDE to your latest build on my test slackware64_14 system and it went smooth as silk.
No problems whatsoever.

HUGE thanks to zerouno for creating this wonderful plugin
With it, slackware is much more extensible than before by adding third party repositories to the official one.

Ah, a small omission in my updated gen_repos_files.sh script. I will fix that and have the GPG-KEY files in every repository.

Cheers, Eric

Thanks all for this really great plugin.

@Alien Bob

Just followed your instructions for ktown repository and everything seemed to go OK but nepomuk-widgets were not installed. I have fixed the problem with Dolphin, but I thought that I should let you know.

Well how exactly did you install KDE then? Can you show the commands you used?

I added the repository information to slackpkg+ then ran slackpkg update, slackpkg install-new, slackpkg upgrade-all.

I just ran slackpkg install kde and it picked up all the games and several libraries.

I was upgrading from 4.9.2 and because of the changes in the file structure I guess that upgrading via slackpkg+ could throw up some difficulties.

Well, like it was explained earlier, "slackpkg install-new" only works for official Slackware packages and only for those packages which were added to the specific release of Slackware that you have configured in slackpkg.
What should work (repeating the information of others, but I dit not test this myself) is running "slackpkg install ktown".

This didn't work for me but "slackpkg install kde" did pick up the new packages, but I'm not sure about the deps I will have to look at that from the command line with an "upgradepkg --install-new *.t?z" in the deps directory.

Addendum: Not all the dependencies were installed. I guess that I must have deleted them at some point when I was experimenting.

Anyway everything looks OK now. Thanks for the help.

Hmmm...
Something wierd:
Code:
bash-4.2# slackpkg search sip
DONE

The list below shows all packages with name matching "sip".
[ Status           ] [ Repository               ] [ Package
  upgrade                                           sip-4.14.2-x86_64-1alien --> sip-4.13.2-x86_64-2
   installed           ktown                        sip-4.14.2-x86_64-1alien

You can search specific files using "slackpkg file-search file".
Yet,
Code:
bash-4.2# slackpkg upgrade sip

Checking local integrity... DONE
Looking for sip in package list. Please wait... DONE

No packages match the pattern for upgrade. Try:

        /usr/sbin/slackpkg install|reinstall
