Anyone using bluefish. I figure since I finally have everything up and running, I want to start doing some actual work on my linux box. I came accross bluefish as an html/php editor. When I went to install the newest rpm, I seem to be missing a lot of dependencies, but I've run swaret. Should I just try an older version of bluefish or how do I get all the dependencies?

what version of slackware do you have installed?

Also, while slackware does have rpm, it is not the best option to use them.

first, try for a native slackware package.

you could turn the rpm into a slackware package like this:

rpm2tgz <rpm file>

but this is not the best option as this rpm was compiled on a different distro with more than likely different versions of software (this will cause problems sometimes).

to install a slackware .tgz package do as root:

installpkg <tgz package name>

I'm running slackware 10.0. I'm installing Quanta right now to try that out, then maybe I'll try another way of installing bluefish and see which I like better.

Nvu is pretty good for html/css coding as well.

I've been using slack & bluefish together for a couple of years. I'm a KDE user & I don't even have Gnome installed. Bluefish is more of a GTK app than a gnome app. If you compile it from source you shouldn't have any problems. I usually grab the latest csv snapshot.

From the website:
The latest version is Bluefish 0.13. If you have gtk version 2.0 or higher, this is the preferred version. It requires gtk version 2.0 or 2.2 (2.4 does work; some minor issues exist), libpcre 3.0 or higher and (optional) libaspell 0.50 or higher for spell checking and (also optional) gnome-vfs for remote files.
