    Welcome to the forums!

    You can find the KDE 4.1.1 packages for Slackware here:

    Index of /linux/slackware/slackware-current/testing/packages/kde4/kde

    I've been using KDE 4 off and on since it was released in January and don't recommend it to anyone other than for experimentation purposes.

    Good luck with it if you should install it.

    I think you'll find all the dependencies that you need to complete your task, here:

    Index of /linux/slackware/slackware-current/testing/packages/kde4/deps

    Hope that works out for you.

    Yeah, it's been a few years since I last ran Blackbox, but it is fun.

    Right now, most anything is better than KDE 4.x, at least in my own opinion.

    Best of luck with it.

    Yeah I like BlackBox. It is fun to use little hard to find widgets or even addons for it tho. If I could script I dont think it would any problems at all but oh well things happen just have to find a way around it. Thinking of looking for a way to use SuperKaramba on it even it means looking up some simpel scripting tut's to do it. If you have any Ideas pleases let me know any thing could help. Thanks
