    A tgz package in Slackware usually denotes a Slackware package. You will have to install it with installpkg (as root):
    Code:
    installpkg <name of package>
    So, in your case it would be:
    Code:
    installpkg point2play-small-2.0.3.tgz

    that means its installed

    check /var/log/packages/ and you'll probably find that package is on

    it just has no description thats all

    You need to type Point2Play.

    You could see where it's installed or follow the instructions on the transgaming site.
