Red face howto set path


I downloaded Slackware thru my dialup which took 48hrs

and installed it

then I needed kde desktop I used my Vector linux disk and untar'ed it from the / dir
which installed everything in /opt/kde

but now when I startkde I am getting lots libraries not found message

for each lib I have to create a symlink in /usr/lib

Is there a way I can use a command to make it find the libraries in /opt/kde

Add the path to the kde libraries in /etc/ld.so.conf and run as root:
Code:
ldconfig
