Projects / gnome-pkgtool


gnome-pkgtool is a GTK+/GNOME front-end to Slackware package management tools (pkgtool). You can install/uninstall/upgrade .tgz packages, build packages from source and install them, and inspect package content. It relies on the installpkg(8) and removepkg(8) tools for installing and uninstalling packages, and on checkinstall for building packages from source.

    Release Notes: This release adds an improved and optimized package list parser (which should no longer segfault on startup when weird packages are encountered) and UI improvements. The progress window now uses GtkTextView and GtkExpander for the details pan.

      Release Notes: This release has a rewritten packages list that supports fancy package icons and some basic package type auto-detection (for packages that don't seem to have an associated icon). You can search a package using Ctrl+F (a la GtkFileChooser). There are several minor improvements and bugfixes.
