Dlackware provides SlackBuild scripts for Gnome 3. The SlackBuilds found here can be used seperatly, but are ment to work as a set on top of PAM and systemd.

It is a sources based project. We currently don't provide pre-built packages. Since there are a lot of packages to build, we developed a small build system which helps to build and install Gnome and its dependencies.

Our package set isn't the full Gnome distribution, but it isn't minimalistic neither. If you miss some packages and you would like to maintain them, fill free to create a pull request.


master branch is used for development of the next Dlackware version.

We support only the latest stable Slackware and one Gnome release per Slackware version.


Currently maintained release of Dlackware is Gnome 3.22 for Slackware 14.2. To get this release use 3.22/14.2 branch.

Current work

master is now updated for Gnome 3.36 on Slackware Current.


Full Slackware installation is required.

For Installation instruction please visit our INSTALL WIKI.

Finished, what now?

  • Enable or disable services in /lib/systemd/system/ (dont forget gdm) (systemctl enable gdm.service)
  • Set graphical-target (init 4) as default (systemctl set-default
  • Or anything else you might forget

Reboot and have fun.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
