KDE 3.1 Help


I've just installed KDE 3.1 on my Slackware Linux. Problem is, the X Server won't start up, complaining something with "command startkde not found". I've installed only the required package files, the KDEBase, KDELibs, and Arts. Is there something wrong in my installation?

EDIT: I've read the install help file of KDE, and it says I need a QT library. Is that all I need? Thanks in advance.

startkde is the script that is used to start, well, kde. It should be in /usr/bin. This is just a guess, but maybe it does not have execute permissions set?

The startkde issue has been resolved, I installed the Qt Library, but I got a new problem: when I startx, the following error appears:

Could not start Kdeinit. Check your installation
kdeinit: error while loading shared libraries: libart_lgpl.so.2: cannot open shared file: No such fie or directory
