I'm pretty busy but wanted to reply.

I will do a install when I have time and the mood strikes me as I would 
like to see TDE on a slack desktop.

What I would really like to see is slack ported to debian, because I 
have disability's that interfere with my keyboarding. With one person or 
more porting and my testing, if it is possible, I don't think it would 
take long.  I should talk to Patrick about this.  Patrick is a friend 
who has personally installed slack on one of my laptops, we have not 
talked for a long while and I need to see if we are, as the saying goes, 
on the same page.

Thank you Gregory for your post.
