Originally the Slackware internationalization project, Slint is now a Linux distribution based on Slackware and Salix. It is polyglot, versatile, beginner friendly, and accessible for the visually impaired. A full Slint installation is functional out of the box and it can be tailored to fit most computing requirements.
This documentation about Slint usage is being written, please be patient.
To get help, visit the Slint forum. It is kindly hosted by our friends at Salix. Other communication channels will be set up when the need arises.
If you want to contribute to Slint in any way, just post in the forum or drop a line to <didier~at~slint~dot~fr>. These documents can be useful for translators and contributors:
The document packages included in Slint version 14.2 lists all of the packages shipped in the Slint ISO, in addition to those that are from genuine Slackware. Be aware that only those tagged Slint are included in the Slint repositories 32-bit and 64-bit. We will list the main software provided on another page.
The Slint project exists mainly through to the hard work of the Slint translation team and other contributors, thanks to all of you! Thanks also to George Vlahavas for his advice, tools and invaluable help. Thanks to the contributors to the SlackBuilds.org project, who help building so many additional software. And of course, the Slint project would not exist without Slackware, brought to us by Patrick J. Volkerding and contributors.
Thanks Pat and crew!
As Slint relies on Slackware, we encourage all Slint users to contribute to its funding, and also to donate to the Salix project.
