Welcome to porteus forum paldo.

I imagine that you have installed the software in the form of a module already. If the following does not resolve the problem, please give more details concerning the manner in which you installed the package, and at which step it does not work? (for example: where did you took your package, do you see you package in the kdemenu, once installed)

As there might be missing dependencies.Try in command line:
root@porteus:~# slackyd -u (to update the slackyd repositories)
root@porteus:~# slacky -d package-name (to get to know the missing dependencies)

For example for you:
root@porteus:~# slacky -d kompozer

Then if they are available install them thru PPM or thru slacky .txz package or get the slackware package on the net (keyworks: package slackware download).

I hope I am not overkilling your question. Don't hesitate to ask some more questions.

I have looked at it. You will find komposer on salix. You will have to fetch it thru PPM porteus 2.0 salix repository (13.37, slackware). It exist, see: ... /kompozer/

However, to install komposer on porteus you would have to install first sourcery and slapt-src on porteus. And then install the package komposer. I have tried to install slapt-src and we've got dependencies problem. No luck. I am stopping here. Or maybe you should try with Salix directly.

Meanwhile, there is already two other webcomposer in the repositories, available thru PPM: bluefish and medit, see discussion:
Seamonkey's web-authoring component
