I used slapt-get to install these dependencies. It installed the packages except for two. I received an error saying, "No such package" for both gdk-pixbuf & startup-notifications.
Then I used the package names gdk-pixbuf2 & startup-notification & got a message that they were both upgraded successfully.
After I checked to make sure all correct versions were installed in /var/log/packages. The following packages are listed:
So, except for the pango package, all meet or exceed the dependency versions listed here:
glib2 (>= 2.2
gdk-pixbuf (>= 2.24)
atk (>= 2.2)
pango (>= 2.2)
pygobject (>= 2.2
startup-notifications (>= 0.12)
gstreamer (>= 0.10.35)
gst-plugins-good (>= 0.10.30)
gnome-icon-theme (>= 3.0.0)
libnotify (>= 0.7.1)
I could find no package for pango version 2.2. The latest version on slackfind.net for pango is pango-1.28.4-i486-1 for 13.37. It also has a packaged named pangomm-2.28.2-i486-1sl.
The site linuxpackages.net has a package named pangomm2.26.2. Is there another place that has pango2.2?

I'm not sure what the deal is here, Mark. The highest stable version of Pango available is 1.29x --> en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pango
You're persistent. I'll give you that. I would have given up on this project long ago. Welcome to Dependency H3LL! It's not a fun place.

I installed the Gnome SlackBuild with what seems to be the latest version of pango (1.29) & got the same error. I'll go ahead & reinstall Slackware. It might be a while before I do this, though.
Thank you for your help.

I wasn't much help. I wish we could have resolved the issue. Well, maybe the reinstall will be a good thing, anyway. There has been a lot of installing/removing/tweaking going on with that current installation of Slack. A fresh start can't hurt.
Best of luck with it, Mark. C'mon back here and give us an update when you have one.
