Can anyone sling me a libpulsecommon-8.0.so rpm? Issue with i3wm

Reddit - Wed, 2016-08-24 04:04

Had to fresh install my Slackware system with i3. I've installed all stated dependencies for i3status and i3, but i3status/i3bar is just not working. When I try to run it from terminal it tells me I'm missing libraries, associated with pulseaudio?? I don't know why that would be.

Anyways, I've been downloading them one-by-one but I can't find libpulsecommon-8.0.

Thanks for any help
