Hey all,

I'm still kinda new to Slack and was wondering how I could update the Fluxbox that comes with 10.1 to the newest version...Is there some command that is universal for updating things in Slack? Thanks!

10.1 comes with 0.9.12, which is the latest developmental there is nothing to upgrade've got the latest already

for upgrading, i use slackpkg which comes with 10.1, on the 3rd disk under extras...or you can download it from
i used it this week to bring my 10.1 up to current.
there's a few others like swaret and slapt-get, i've never used those so i can't say how well they work. you can also find tons of packages for slack at linuxpackages
