as I promised, I have added the necessary branches to my slackbuilds.org’s git master fork, so it will be easy to build a complete LXDE desktop using sbopkg.
I used existing slackbuilds.org components, I added alien bob’s scripts adapting them to slackbuilds.org template and I wrote some from scratch.
- UPDATE: all the components are submitted to slackbuilds.org now so there’s no particular need to set up my repository, unless you want latest testing (but working) stuff.
I also removed the gnome-vfs building option because it’s obsolete starting with slackware 13.37; libatasmart, sg3utils, udisk, upower and gvfs are part of slackware since 14.0.
I’ll try to keep it updated with the latest fixes, you can see them in the branch list of the git repository, so you can use them individually.
the quick install guide:
download and install the latest version of sbopkg (if you don’t have it already, as it’s a must-have application for slackware )
Launch it, go to the Utilities menu and use the Repository option to select the SBo-git repository.
you can then go back to the main menu and select the Sync option.
You can also use some command line alternatives
If you find any problems syncing, just
rm -fR /var/lib/sbopkg/SBo-git sbopkg -r
use this text file as /var/lib/sbopkg/queues/lxde.sqf

sbopkg -i lxde
choose in the dialog to keep the queue options and you’ve only to wait a little.
at the end, launching xwmconfig you can choose xinitrc.lxde and the next time you enter in X you’ll have a brand new shiny LXDE desktop.
