start KDE error after update to -current but interrupted by electricity problem !

hi !

again i have an error in my box.

i updated to -current, but in the middle of update, the electricity is down (in my country, this problem always occur very often).
i turn on my box again and run slackpkg update && slackpkg upgrade-all to finishing update that interrupt by the electricity problem.
but after i completely updated my box, i reboot but i cannot enter KDE, if i want to enter XFCE, the window decorator is missing.

FYI, my home directory space is sufficient (approx 1,5 GB)

and this is the report after i run startx in KDE WM

I think you missed slackpkg install-new and you're needing: l/libdbusmenu-qt-0.6.1-i486-1.txz: Added.

If not, I guess I'd take all the latest packages and one by one I'd do: upgradepkg --reinstall <package-name> and after that I'd check for *new files either by slackpkg new-config or by find /etc -name "*new".

Hope it helps, good luck
