Can't run installed packages in Suse 9.1 Personal


I am very new to Linux (just installed for the first time about a week ago). I installed Suse 9.1 personal with KDE 3.2 and have been very impressed. However, when I install rpm packages in yast, they will install fine, but when I go to run them, they appear in the taskbar for about 10-15 seconds with a rotating hourglass and then just dissappear. They never actually run. Programs I have tried are Krusader, KFS, Kbilliards, and KDevelop. Any ideas what I need to do?

You can probably get a more meaningful error message by starting these programs from a konsole. Open a konsole and type the command name in at the command prompt for example:
kdevelop

You can find out if a program is available on the PATH with the which command:
which kdevelop

You can check what packages you have installed with:
rpm -qa | sort | less

You can check on an individual package with:
rpm -qi kdevelop

Thanks for your help. I tried runnnig from a konsole and krusader, kfs, and kdevelop all gave the same error message:

Code:
kfs: error while loading shared libraries: kfs: undefined symbol: _ZN11KMainWindow7setIconERK7QPixmap
(replace kfs with whatever program I am running)

Any idea what that means?

"kfs: error while loading shared libraries: kfs: undefined symbol: _ZN11KMainWindow7setIconERK7QPixmap"

KDE and Qt are developed togather. As a result you have to have matched version of KDE and Qt. When you have installed versions of Qt and KDE which are not matched then you can get errors like the one you have hit. You need to review the packages that you have installed since the initial install and perhaps install different versions of either Qt or some of the KDE programs.

If you don't know what your update history is then you should go through the initial install again and then work your way through your upgrades in a methodical manner.

Wow! Thanks so much for your help. I went ahead and reinstalled Suse 9.1, and then noticed that KDE was 3.2 and QT was 3.3. Now why in the world would Suse come standard with different versions of these when, it doesn't allow any kde programs to run? Any way, I updated to KDE 3.3, which like anything in linux took me hours of research to accomplish. Nevertheless, I did it and now I can install and run programs just fine. However, now when I open Konqueror and click the devices tab, it gives me an error message and says "Protocol not supported". I assume I need to update something else.... but what?
