"kdeinit won't start, Check installation" message


Hi

I get the following error message when I try to start KDE in RedHat 9:

[root@localhost /]# kdeinit
kdeinit: error while loading shared libraries: libqt-mt.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
[root@localhost /]#

But I do have the file libqt-mt.so.3 on my computer.

I tried adding the directory it is in to my PATH but I get the same error message.

I have tried adding the directory it is in to my QTDIR environment variable and I also tried adding it to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH but I get the same error message.

Do I have to uninstall and then reinstall KDE?

Any help solving this problem would be appreciated.

Many thanks.

Regards,
Bill Dika
