error: The important program kde-config was not found!
I'm tring to install "ktranslator-0.4" on my slackware64-13.0. When I type in ./configure I get the following mesgs with error:
checking build system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
checking host system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu

checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for kde-config... not found
configure: error: The important program kde-config was not found!
Please check whether you installed KDE correctly.
I'm not using a symlink, but I am getting the qt error.
I also installed everything except k3b in the /extra directory. That's why I don't get the kde-config error. I have no clue why configure is not finding qt. This is the code I ran:
before you started the build? Its a good idea to always run this command after a software install to inform the system of new libraries. I should have added that.
yeah, i know this command and did run it before my compiling, like you said, couldn't have any lucky.
i know there is another dict software that named stardict, i run it very well on my ubuntu before i run slackware, but it requires much gtk libs and i gave up. i really want a local dictionary, any other alternative ?
