0.82 is really old...
There is a distro agnostic tool, Sweets. It is a PMS like wrapper
around Zero Install, but it's reusing local distro packages via
another distro agnostic tool, PackageKit.
If you are interesting to have Sugar via Sweets, could you take a look
into https://packages.sugarlabs.org/project/packages?project=base and
post the Slackware package names for analogs of all these packages.
So, you can run Sugar sweets (after installing PackageKit) in Slackware.
