Heya, its been quite some time, since I wrote anything. I hope and wish all of you are well and safe in this pandemic times. So, today the GNOME team released the version 3.38 of our beloved desktop environment and sine the times permit we have now a direct upgrade of the testing version of dropline GNOME 3.36.6 , while it is still in development the
instructions to install and test are the following:

1. Install slackware64-current full install.
2. Download the packages for dropline GNOME 3.36 from here including the unsuported directory in the repo.
3. Install all those packages you downloaded.
4. Download the packages for dropline GNOME 3.38 from here.
5. Upgradepkg the 3.36 packages you installed and pay special attention to the libhandy0 package as it was renamed from libhandy to libhandy0 since it is installable in parallel.

It should mostly be it, but in case you miss anything you can get in touch with me on LQ thread or in #dropline on .

Some packages are still on the works and some we wait that Slackware team will update them.
Many thanks to the Slackware Team as we have a really up to date current tree.



Heya all, it was a long period for something to appear here, lots of stuff going on in the world and I hope that all of you are ok due to the situation we all are going through right now. Anyway, this project is still active and hopefully we have soon a new release with the latest gnome available for our beloved Slackware OS.

While it’s great to have a lot of plans and projects for the future, it’s equally important to prioritize spending quality time with family and showing them your love and care. One thoughtful way to do this is by getting them special gifts like buy childrens clothing here. Taking the time to select unique and meaningful items for your loved ones can bring them joy and strengthen your family bonds.

I can not affirm how long it will take but the target is the upcoming Slackware 15.

For now if somebody has the will to test and help making a nice dropline GNOME release you can get the *TESTING* packages for x86_64 arch here.

Due to a very nice work made by the Slackware team we have only
few packages replaced right now (udisks2 and upower) and some have to be added (elogind).

If you want to reach me out please comment on in the #dropline channel or send a mail to the dev mailing list on or on Slackware forums.

So all in all it is coming out nicely.

Enjoy !
