"KSlackMenu" Panel Icon

As you now, Slackware Project does not prefer changing any components of GNU/Linux OS, desktop environment or desktop manager. It is aimed that stability, simplicity and being most UNIX-like distribution. Software packages in Slackware come with a few modifications as much as possible. As a result of this, desktop environments run on Slackware are lack of visual components special to Slackware unlike other popular GNU/Linux Distributions such as "Debian", "Red Hat Enterprise Linux" or "Suse Linux Enterprise".

I have redesigned a new KMenu Icon for Slackware using the original KDE logo at Wikipedia.

To change KMenu Icon in Slackware 13.37, simply right click on the KMenu Icon on KDE Panel, then follow below path.

Slackware 13.37 is released!

It's true! Slackware 13.37 has been released. Nearly a year in the making, you will appreciate the performance and stability that can only come with careful and rigorous testing. Slackware 13.37 uses the Linux kernel (hence our new $SLACKWARE_VERSION.$KERNEL_VERSION naming system used for this release ;-), and also ships with kernels for those who want to run the latest (and also includes configuration files for and 2.6.39-rc4). The long-awaited Firefox 4.0 web browser is included, the X Window System has been upgraded (and includes the open source nouveau driver for nVidia cards). The venerable Slackware installer has been improved as well, with support for installing to btrfs (for those who would like to try a new copy on write filesystem), a one-package-per-line display mode option, and alienBOB's big surprise: an easy to set up PXE install server that runs right off the DVD!

More details may by found in the official announcement and in the release notes. For a complete list of included packages, see the package list.

Please consider supporting the Slackware project by picking up a copy of the Slackware 13.37 release from theSlackware Store. The discs are off to replication, but we're accepting pre-orders for the official 6 CD set and the DVD. The CD set is the 32-bit x86 release, while the DVD is a dual-sided disc with the 32-bit x86 release on one side and the 64-bit x86_64 release on the other. And, we still have T-shirts (coming soon, a limited edition 13.37 release commemorative black T-shirt with the classic Slackware logo on the front, and a "leet" LILO bootscreen on the back) and other Slackware stuff there, so have a look around. Thanks to our subscribers and supporters for keeping Slackware going all these years.

Thanks are again due to the Slackware crew, the developers of, the community, Slackware IRC channels, and everyone else who helped out with this release.

Have fun, and enjoy the new stable release!
