Where/what to get for XFCE 4.2.0

I have Slackware 10.0. Can I use the 4.2.0 package for 10.1? Or would that mess things up? If not, do I download the .bz2, or the .gz, or should I just get the .rpm and do an rpm2tgz. I'm a newbie, so I'm not a pro at installing from source, but I've done it twice before.

Also, if with 10.0 and XFCE 4.2.0, will I have all the dependencies that I need?

Thanks a lot.

they usually have what you're looking for, in the .tgz you can just install the tgz file.

You could also get the GUI installer. It is available from

This is simply a frontend for compiling from source, but makes the whole process much easier.
