kdeinit


Here's the situation.
A friend burned Slack 10 for me but burned the wrong iso for disc 2, so no kde or gnome.
I thought no problem, I'll just go get kde off the net. Everything installed just fine, but when I go to startx, it tells me it can't find kdeinit. I can find kdeinit, so my guess is I'm missing a link somewhere.
Anyone know which one?

in a console, type:
echo $PATH
you should have /opt/kde/bin
if not check your /etc/profile.d/kde.sh...it should set the path.
also make sure you have /opt/kde/lib in your /etc/ld.so.conf

Important thing is that the KDE 3.3 from kde.org is missing some things - kdelinks, QT.

I would think it is easier to download the kde folder of CD2. Go to any ftp site listed on Slackware.com and download the /slackware/kde folder. it's only 180Mb for everything.

Or, you just get the packages missing in the KDE 3.3 "Update" from kde.org's contrib folder, like kdelinks and QT from CD2.

Just install those 1st, and the KDE 3.3 upgrade after.

(If you throw some things away, like games, toys, koffice, you can get the dl down to ~114mb)

oh, i thought he used something like
swaret --install kde
which should have caught most dependencies

sorry

Apparently he didn't use swaret/slapt-get... which is probably for the better. S/He wont go fixing problems which dont exist.

Nahh, I AM a good friend of automated update tools, I just saw what havoc apt-get brings to an average beginning Debian user (read: me ) One tends to be carried away, starts to --force packages for versions from different bases, and problems come rolling in.

Now I just upgrade stuff by hand, only in cases of great need.

Thanks guys, I was missing kdelinks and QT. As soon as I installed them, everything started up just fine.
