Solaris KDE no text problem


I've installed KDE (kde_gcc package) from
When I try to run it (KDE itself as WM), i get crash message - but without any text! Then X freezes.

If I try to run KDE programs from some other WM, th eprogram runs, but again without any text. Empty toolbars, empty buttons. Nothing.

Has anyone seen this kind of problem?

I've intentionally used kde_gcc package so that I don't have to think about dependancies.

thanx in advance

thanx, the problem is solved.
I've contacted the man who made the package.
The package itself was broken.
If anyone gets this problem, he / she should remove kdebase_gcc and download it from the stable release.
It will work then.
