Instructions for setting up slackpkg+ and sbopkg


Slackpkg+ can be obtained from

In /etc/slackpkg/slackpkgplus.conf the following settings need to be added:

Add studioware to REPOPLUS:

REPOPLUS=( slackpkgplus restricted alienbob slacky studioware )

Add a MIRRORPLUS entry:


Then run slackpkg update gpg; slackpkg update

  • Note that when running 'slackpkg clean-system' slackpkg will assume that your studioware packages are part of the default/stock set and will not list them. To get around this turn slackpkg+ off in /etc/slackpkg/slackpkgplus.conf or via CLI, then run slackpkg update, slackpkg clean-system. Then you must turn it back on and run slackpkg update once more to get back up-to-date. This alias may help:

alias clean='SLACKPKGPLUS=off slackpkg update; slackpkg clean-system; SLACKPKGPLUS=on; slackpkg update'


Sbopkg can be obtained from

We have two main branches - master and dev. Note that at times dev moves pretty fast and so breakages should be expected.

Create file:


With the single line:

studioware master "Master git branch for" se git git:// ""

For the dev branch make another file:



studioware dev "Dev git branch for" se git git:// ""

Then fire up sbopkg and choose the repo through the 'Utilities' menu. Back to main menu and sync.

If you have any problems, like sbopkg refusing to start, you may need to delete ~/.sbopkg.conf.


Consider this to be experimental at the moment.

We will continue to maintain our own tools too, but will guide them more towards installing sets or categories in the future.
