R-Studio Slackware Compatibility

Would R-Studio run under Linux Slackware 14.2?
If so, what install would be best for Slackware?

Looks like it satisfies the general requirements for R-Studio for Linux.
But the best way is to try it yourself. You can install R-Studio in its Demo mode and see the results.
BTW, does Slackware support .deb or .rpm?

Thank you for the reply. I didn't realize I was not logged in but this the OP.
Slackware does have the rpm package. However I have problems with dependencies when running rpm on the R-Studio rpm. It will take me some time to work through them. I am not a Slackware guy but am helping someone that lost a development effort and had a failed backup. The problems are dependencies that start with packages that are shown to be included but not found :(
Before I crawl into that rabbit hole can you tell me if R-Studio will scan the bits on a disk looking for file fragments and try to reconstruct files like ascii texts?
I need something that might be called disk forensics. The disk partition was reconstructed but a large number of files are still missing. I am looking for evidence that they were positively overwritten before giving up on the disk.
Happy Trails
