okularpart.so cannot find libKF5PurposeWidgets.so.5


I've been running slackware-current with Alien's packages, but recently I get this issue with Okular:

Quote:
Unable to find the Okular component: Cannot load library /usr/lib64/qt5/plugins/okularpart.so: (libKF5PurposeWidgets.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)
Code:
$ ldd /usr/lib64/qt5/plugins/okularpart.so | grep found
        libKF5PurposeWidgets.so.5 => not found
        libKF5Purpose.so.5 => not found

Those are a part of the purpose package.

Thanks.

I'm wondering why
Code:
slackpkg install-new
didn't detect this new package. I had to manually run
Code:
slackpkg install purpose

This is slackpkg+ I take.

Quoting http://slakfinder.org/slackpkg+/src/README:

Quote:
Use the command
# slackpkg install-new
(if you use Slackware -current) to check for new packages. This command
searches for new packages ONLY in the official Slackware repository.
The readme has a section on ktown specifically, too

Quote:
Periodically you should re-run
# slackpkg install ktown
to be sure that newer packages are installed

I've also just fallen foul of this one, but my case is slightly different! I have two machines running -current with alien kde5, and to save on download time when keeping them up to date, I keep a local copy of the -current and kde5 (x86_64 only) repositories on NAS, then update from the local copy.

# slackpkg install kde5 (where kde5 is my local copy) only seems to install very few files. I suspect its only checking the top level directories?. Being inexperienced with slackpkg+, am I doing the right thing? Should I be using some other command?

Any comments gratefully received!

The command "slackpkg install kde5" will only install packages from the kde5 repository that were not already installed. Naturally that would only be a limited number and if you are uptodate, the number would be zero. Updating all the installed packages to the versions that are available in the repository, requires the command "slackpkg upgrade kde5" instead.

Thanks Eric! I wondered if that was the case, but not being sure, thought I'd ask!

BTW, thank you very much for your excellent kde5 upgrade for Slackware! A lot of the software I use most is now only available in kde5 versions, and without your efforts, I would be forced to abandon my beloved Slackware!

Cheers,
