libknewstuff.so.1


Good Day All . . .

I upgraded to KDE 3.3 and one of the components does not work. It is missing the library file, libknewstuff.so.1. It should reside in /usr/libs/.

The bug was reported around 23 August 2004 as #268327. I followed lots of messages about the bug but I could not find anywhere to locate the file on the web.

I did find a reference to recompiling something but that is out of my depth.

Does anyone know where I can locate the file? The bug should have been fixed in two months. It dependably crashes korganizer.

for future reference, you can search for specific files here:
http://www.debian.org/distrib/packages#search_contents

you can open up deb files in your favorite package manager - ark or file roller.
each deb has 2 tar.gz files. there is a control.tar.gz, and a data.tar.gz. if you open the data.tar.gz, you can find all the files in the package, and extract the ones you need.

I knew about the download aspects but you mentioned extracting one or more files. I never realised that but I will keep it up front for future problems.

Thanks again . . .
