go take a look at the package called Swaret..it downloads from the slackware ftp site, and i think it takes care of dependancies also...so for something like kde, this maybe an easier route to get it done.

well there is alot of packages so thats why i recommended what i did, just to see if that could help you out, but anyways, i think this thread would be best for you to read, and just go from there. they show the links in posts to a couple of links where you get all the packages, so i think this will be beneficial to you...
