Compiling kde 3.5.x apps on Slack64 13.0 running kde 3.5.10


Ok, so I just did a fresh install of Slack64 13 and I want to install a nice windeco for it. Now during the install I opted to leave out all of kde and qt so I could install kde 3.5.10. Everything is working great, except when I try to build crystal window decoration, I get:
Code:
checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.3 and < 4.0) (library qt-mt) not found. Please check your installation!
For more details about this problem, look at the end of config.log.
Make sure that you have compiled Qt with thread support!
I know I have qt installed.
Code:
()- ls /var/log/packages/ | grep qt
poppler-qt3-0.10.7-x86_64-2opt
qt3-3.3.8b-x86_64-opt3
qtscriptgenerator-0.1.0-x86_64-1
Even if I just do a regular ./configure, make I get the same error. Anyone know of any way to fix this so it will find my qt install?

p.s. QTDIR is set in my environment as well:
Code:
- echo $QTDIR
/opt/kde3/lib64/qt3

Maybe your version of QT was not compiled with multithreading support? Try running updatedb and then "slocate libqt-mt". If nothing comes up, there's a problem. Try building from source.

You can try doing :

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/kde3/lib64/qt3/lib
in the terminal used.

.. if the path isn't mentioned in /etc/ld.so.conf

The export.. command is temporary .. the path
works till you exit the terminal session.

I just compiled kmymoney using the slackbuild, so I would guess most kde3 programs should compile, I am using Slackware64-13.0 (multi-lib) with KDE 3.5.10.

@knudfl: It's in the ld.so.conf.
Code:
--> cat /etc/ld.so.conf
/usr/local/lib
/usr/x86_64-slackware-linux/lib
/usr/lib64/seamonkey
/opt/kde3/lib64

I believe the QT package that comes with Slack doesn't have multithreading support enabled, as I have no libqt-mt files. And it looks like it's failing because of that, hence the "qt-mt"

Hmmm....do the newer QT packages not utilize libqt-mt files, then? I have qt-r1008952-x86_64-1 which came with Slack 13 and I have no such files.

# 5 :

No, /opt/kde3/lib64/qt3/lib is not in your/etc/ld.so.conf

And may be it shouldn't be, hence the export command.

Sorry, knudfl. I tried the export command and got the same error.
@BrZ: I wouldn't think I would need the kde3-compat pkgs. The qt package is actually older than the one with kde3.5.10.
