Not finding libXxf86vm.so.1 when starting KDE.
I'm sorry that my first contribution to this group should be a question. I have recently installed Slack 14.1 on a new PC. Did a full install (okay, I skipped Seamonkey since I don't see the point having both Firefox and Thunderbird as well) and then pumped over the /home directories from my 13.37 machine (and passwd, groups, shadow and gshadow) and I tried to give the new KDE a spin.
Then my problem occurs: I type startx and get the icon for the harddisk and shortly after that the screen turns back to my console again and I get the complaint that a deamon (kded) and a program (ksmserver) could not continue because they both can't find libXxf86vm.so.1....
I have followed Pat's advice in CHANGES_AND_HINTS.TXT (running an Intel processor) and disabled the composite option. That didn't help either.
Switching to level 4 and using the fail-safe KDE shows me a completely blank desktop (except for the command line box) and that is not really the KDE I am used to.
Lastly I used slackpkg reinstall kde to (presumably) completely reinstal kde but to no avail. I feel like I'm running around in circles right now and not sure how to continue.
Any helpful hints and tips will be greatly appreciated.
