Unhappy KDE 3.2.3 (for Slackware) does not work on ZipSlack 10


I have a functional ZipSlack 10, and I want to install KDE 3.2.3 (currently the latest).

I know that I need a KDE specifically for Slackware. So I downloaded from ftp.ntua.gr/pub/linux/slackware/slackware-10.0/slackware/kde/ the following packages:

kdeaccessibility-3.2.3-i486-1.tgz
kdeaddons-3.2.3-i486-1.tgz
kdeadmin-3.2.3-i486-1.tgz
kdeartwork-3.2.3-i486-1.tgz
kdebase-3.2.3-i486-1.tgz
kdebindings-3.2.3-i486-1.tgz
kdegraphics-3.2.3-i486-1.tgz
kdelibs-3.2.3-i486-1.tgz
kdelinks-1.3-noarch-1.tgz
kdemultimedia-3.2.3-i486-1.tgz
kdepim-3.2.3-i486-1.tgz
kdesdk-3.2.3-i486-1.tgz
kdetoys-3.2.3-i486-1.tgz
kdeutils-3.2.3-i486-1.tgz
kdevelop-3.0.4-i486-1.tgz
koffice-1.3.1-i486-3.tgz
(of cource there were escorted by the corresponding .tgz.asc and .txt files)

After putting them into a temporary folder (it was "/temp2") I typed:

installpkg *.tgz

I saw some messages, but didn't noticed any suspicious "error" message.

After installation was over, I typed "startx". Nothing happened, so I typed "startkde". KDE didn't start, instead it poped up some messages. Here is some:

/opt/KDE/bin/startkde: line 94: xset: command not found

ksplash: error while loading shared libraries: libard_lgpl_2.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

...Actually, the rest of the messaged were alike.

Any idea of what's happening?

Did you install X11 first?

Also, run xwmconfig again.

Oh yeah...don't startx as root either.

Thank you for replying so fast! But it is still not clear to me of what I must do:

Why is it necessary to have X11 in order to have KDE?

Is KDE some kind of a Shell uppon X11?

Actually I never run xwmconfig. What's it's purpose?

There was no "libart_lgpl" package from the place I downloaded the KDE packages. Where do I find this?

X11 is a graphical server, KDE and other Window Manager or Desktops (a Window Manager bundled with software GNOME is one too) runs on top of it.

If you want to find official slackware packages try: http://slackware.com/pb
