KDE 5_16.06 for Slackware -current

It’s that time of the month again, where the three main software collections of the KDE community have had new releases. Time to package and release for Slackware! KDE 5_16.06 is the June release of the combined KDE Frameworks 5.23.0, Plasma 5.6.5 and Applications 16.04.2 for Slackware. You will certainly have noticed that I am still using the words “current” […]

With a fresh kernel and glibc in -current and new Plasma5 packages, […]

KDE 5_15.12 for Slackware-current

 It is time for a refresh of my ‘ktown’ package set. KDE 5_15.12 has been uploaded, containing the latest and greatest: Frameworks 5.17.0, Plasma 5.5.1 and Applications 15.12.0. To be honest, the compilation had already finished on tuesday but due to the hectic work circumstances moving toward the christmas break, I did not have time to install and test the […]
