KDE styles missing after upgrade
 
hmm, another weird quirk after the latest upgrade to Current. I had installed at least 5 styles on top of the normal ones that ship with KDE.

Now all I get for style choices are: CDE, Compact, Win 9X, Motif, Platinum, SGI.

These styles suck and really want my Plastik back. I've done a locate and found Plastik.so/la in /opt/kde/lib/kde3/plugins/styles.

I've uninstalled / reinstalled KDE via packages found on KDE.org with no luck.

Anyone have this issue?

bump. No one?
There must be a missing symlink somewhere....

I just upgraded and found the same problem. Did you ever solve this?

I think its a problem with qt. Did you upgrade qt as well?

Yes, but when I go back to the office I'll delete ~/.qt and see what happens. That sometimes solves problems like this. If that fails, I'll try deleting renaming ~/.kde. If that fails, I'll reinstall all the slackware/kde files. Ths problem only occurred after upgrading kdebase, kdepim, and cyrus-sasl, after already having upgraded to KDE 3.4 a while ago.

You may have to use the version of qt from wherever you got the kde packages.

Makes sense. When I reinstall the whole kde package, that will be covered. Thanks.

I reinstalled KDE to fix (qt as well)

There is an order to which you install KDE packages.

Just make sure you install KDE base BEFORE you install KDE artwork.

If you have lost some of the styles and whatnot, just reinstall KDE artwork. . .

I've had this problem in the past. And this was how I've fixed it.

I reinstalled kdeartwork after the upgrade, but that didn't fix it.

Sorry, should have been more clear.

First, uninstall kde artwork and kde base. . .

Then install kde base, first, then kde artwork.

reddazz 04-24-2005 04:40 AM

And always install kde-addons last.

ralvy 04-25-2005 06:02 PM

Solved with a complete reinstallation of KDE 3.4 from Current. I imagine the problem was that I had a mixture Linux Packages and official packages.

Ah, mixing packages is going to cause problems
