Debian-Based Slax 9.4 Linux OS Adds Easier App Install Method, More Improvements

The most prominent change in the Slax 9.4 release is a new method for installing apps, which makes it a breeze for newcomers to install popular Linux apps, but only if the developer will add a placeholder for them in the distribution’s app drawer (see the attached screenshot for details). According to the developer, Slax will now show launchers for not-installed apps, which, when clicked, they will fetch and install the respective application from the official software repositories. The first such app installer are available for the VLC Media Player and VoteCoin anonymous cryptocurrency wallet.
