kbfx for KDE 3.5

Has anyone used or downloaded kbfx?
If not that's cool to.

In slackware what is the correct method for typing in this command
sudo apt-get install kbfx
I'm reading instructions for ubuntu but I have slack so the commands I think will be different because my konsol does not recognize 'apt-get'

Also what's a kicker? It's asking me to right click on it.

I'll trying to answer my own thread here.

I found a website that has 77 useful commands for linux maybe it could help

"Sudo (superuser do) allows a system administrator to give certain users (or groups of users) the ability to run some (or all) commands as root or another user while logging the commands and arguments."

"The apt-get program searches for and installs software packages on Debian-based systems."

My problem is finding the right commands to use now with slackware because it's not a Debian-based system.

a quote from nycace36 said
To contrast Slackware and Debian-based distros: Debian and debian-based distros rely upon dselect and 'apt', the advanced package tool, for installation and upgrades, e.g., apt-get. Slackware itself initially uses 'setup' in installing packages, but then afterwards relies upon the fairly straightforward 'pkgtool' and 'installpkg' commands (actually, if I am not mistaken, the initial Slackware 'setup' uses 'pkgtool' with a specific command-argument for first-time installation).
So does that mean I replace the 'apt-get' command with 'pkgtool'?
Basically, I just need to know what to replace 'sudo apt-get install kbfx' with.
If anyone can help that would be cool
