About QTGZManager

QTGZManager is a powerfull tool to manage Slackware Linux 1 TGZ/TXZ packages. It resembles a file manager and consists basicly of 4 (configurable) panels:

  • Directories;
  • Packages found in selected directory;
  • List of installed packages;
  • Actions, a tabbed panel where we have access to various actions executed over packages.

Some of the features:

  • Supports KDE 3.x, KDE 4.x, XFCE, LXDE, MATE and Trinity Desktop Environments;
  • Install/Re install/Upgrade/Downgrade/Remove packages – watching the output of these commands on demand;
  • View the content of packages (including opening files from non-installed packages);
  • View the description of packages in colored tooltips;
  • Find out which package a certain file belongs to;
  • Search for files inside an installed/not installed package;
  • Search for packages in directories;
  • View differences between different package versions;
  • Freeze/Unfreeze a package so it cannot be accidentally removed/upgraded/downgraded;
  • Download official OS patches from your nearest Slackware mirror 2.
