Unfortunately none of the above worked for me, maybe I'm missing a/some package(s)/lib(s)? Any idea which packages are required for this (I don't want to blindly install *.txz for this).

Do you mind telling us how you upgraded?

# slackpkg install-new
# slackpkg upgrade-all

'Upgradepkg' worked fine here for 'upgraded' packages, both 32 and 64bit. 'Installpkg' does the job for the 'added' ones, principally 'kdelibs-experimental'.

any ideas?

Any suggestions where to look?
Log files show nothing.
Konqueror, Dolphin started from terminal doesn't say anything related.
Walking through /usr/bin and /usr/lib with ldd shows no missing libraries.

I'm in the appropriate groups - I think -, and done a hal/dbus restart too.

This is on a Slackware-current.

$ groups
users lp floppy audio video cdrom plugdev power netdev scanner

Anyone got an idea what could be wrong here?

Thanks!

Try to find any *.new files placed inside /etc (and below) directory structure during last upgrade. Then make them effective as described in the PV's UPGRADE.TXT file :

<<5. Fix your config files. Some of the config files in /etc are going to need your attention. You'll find the new incoming config files on your system with the ".new" extension. You may need to fill these in with information from your old config files and then move them over. >>

Then, reboot your machine.

Just saw the hugh upgrade to KDE 4.3.2 today as I have been away. Did as I usually do, used Slackpkg to update, install-new and upgrade-all. Seemed to go just fine, but when KDE completes loading, there is no panel and any attempt add one fails. I can right click and use "add panel", but it simple adds a small icon to the top corner of the desktop. The familiar blue desktop is there, but no panel.

If anyone has any idea how to fix this, I would appreciate it. Until then I can use XFCE just fine.

Thanks

Bob

When upgrading kde, you will need to remove or rename the .kde home directory. KDE is trying to load settings for the previous version and I'm sure some things are not compatible. That should take care of your problem.

Thank you..that did indeed solve the problem. I have to say, just my initial browse through 4.3.2, I liked the previous version better. This one seems to have a "washed out look" that I didn't see before. I will work with it for a while to see what I can do.

KDE is much improved, but still got some work left to do. It is much more improved. At least in my opinion though. It loads much faster and feels snappier on the same hardware.

I agree to the above to some extend, only regarding the looks of course.
While on 4.2.4 i disabled all desktop efects and kept the default Oxygen plasma theme, on 4.3.2 i decided to install a non included in the KDE packages plasma theme to make the bar on the bottom look better than Air.
I went for Glassified from kde-look.org which is popular and also has a KDM and Splash theme available.
The downside is that it needs desktop effects enabled to look decent, but those can be customised to be minimum i guess.

check /etc/rc.d and see if rc.messagebus and rc.hald has execute permissions. i've had issues before where somehow their execute permissions are changed after doing an upgrade with slackpkg. hope this helps, cheers.

That's just the default theme though
It's quite easily changed.

Thanks to the crew: I just upgraded to -current (although I usually stick with stable for what I think are good reasons), and it it's really worth it! Excellent job, once again!
