KDE4.4.5 crashes when starting language settings in systemsettings

Hi there,

I am trying to switch to KDE4.4.5 on my main machine. I installed the KDE packages and also the german language file. Everything works fine except the language settings. When I try to start it crash and a KDE crash dialog opens that gives this "developer information":
Application: System Settings (systemsettings), signal: Segmentation fault
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/gdb/auto-load/usr/lib/", line 9, in <module>
    from gobject import register
  File "/usr/share/glib-2.0/gdb/", line 3, in <module>
    import gdb.backtrace
ImportError: No module named backtrace

I have no idea why this happens. It works on my netbook. I run on both machines Slackware 13.1. The only difference I can think of is that KDE was pre-installed on my netbook and I just upgraded it. On my main machine I installed all packages except the packages of kde and kdei.

Any ideas?

That right there would seem to be the issue. I imagine you are missing a package that is causing the problem

Okay, I installed the KDE4 packages from the DVD and then upgraded to AlienBob's KDE 4.4.5. When I try to open the language settings I still get the error.

Any other ideas?
