Description superandrzej 2008-03-22 23:13:08 UTC
With the reference to the Issue 59183:
With Slackware 12.0 the KDE installation path has changed from /opt/kde to /usr
There is a need to introduce this small change in to slackware-menu package.

answering your question from Issue 59183:
As far as I know there is no mechanism in Slackware to handle this issue within
one package, so in order not to include 2 packages for slackware it will be
better to stick with the new path.
Or another but not very nice solution is to keep kde related files both in old
and in new location.

Since Slackware 12.0, kde is in the /usr prefix, so yes, the icons will need to
be placed in the /usr/share/icons area now.  I would not recommend shipping two
separate packages - as I see it, a user who needs the latest
should consider upgrading to a more recent Slackware version that supports it.

Due to the obviously imperfect conversion of the RPM's to Slackware package
format and/or installing with rpm on Slackware systems (see footnotes below),
I'm curious as to whether you guys would consider recommending my third party
package for OOo to Slackware users on your download page.  Basically all I do is
repackage the individual rpm's into one large package, with the only changes
being making it comply with Slackware packaging standards and fixing the menu
entries to run properly in xfce.  Full package sources are here (along with the
script that runs to actually build the package):  and the package itself
is here:

Re RPM issues:

I am a member of the Slackware development team, and while we have no intention
of adding OOo to the core Slackware system, I intend to continue to maintain
unofficial packages for the foreseeable future.

Shouldn't be better just to change the slackware's desktop integration package?

That's a tgz.

This question already have been handled somewhere - on another issue?
