Following up from last time:
gmcdavid@Tyrone:~$ flatpak uninstall com.visualstudio.code gmcdavid@Tyrone:~$ flatpak uninstall com.visualstudio.code-oss
I was prompted for the root password. I may come back to Flatpak on Slackware, but for now on to some other installations….
Downloaded libreoffice-7.3.2-x86_64-1alien.txz from the links in LibreOffice 7.3.0 for Slackware 15.0 (and -current).
gmcdavid@Tyrone:~/installs$ installpkg libreoffice-7.3.2-x86_64-1alien.txz bash: installpkg: command not found
OK. I was not logged on as root.
gmcdavid@Tyrone:~/installs$ sudo installpkg libreoffice-7.3.2-x86_64-1alien.txz Password: sudo: installpkg: command not found
Not what I expected.
gmcdavid@Tyrone:~/installs$ su Password: bash-5.1# installpkg libreoffice-7.3.2-x86_64-1alien.txz
This worked. You really have to be root for package work. Apparently sudo is not enough.
pre>bash-5.1# sudo sboinstall vscodium
This worked. I have VSCodium. It is in its proper place in the development menu. I opened it and change the color scheme. I am not a fan of dark mode.
BTW: Why Virtual Studio Code/VSCodium? I write a lot of static HTML, and I really like how tt automatically inserts the second of paired html tags. However, I can appreciate other editors. I have been using Kate here on Slackware and it is nicer than gEdit, the Gnome text editor on my Ubuntu and Debian systems. Apparently there is a new Gnome editor, but I have not tried it yet.
Added shortcuts to my Ubuntu shares to Thunar. They reappeared after rebooting, which I really wanted..
Keeping Slackware up to date, See slackpkg
slackpkg update gpg slackpkg update
The first time I ran this I got a message that I needed to uncomment one of the mirrors listed in
/etc/slackpkg/mirrors. I did this and afterwords everything worked.
sudo sboinstall free42
This seemed to work. It is in /var/log/packages, but neither version of Free42 appeared in the application menu. They work when invoked invoked from a command line. That is good enough for me.
