There is no any error or other message in the terminal window when

I still can switch to other terminal windows by ctrl+alt+F(1-6).

How could I fix this or at least find out what the problem is?

Istvan, it is hard to tell. I suspect there is an overlooked dependency. It
would be helpful to post to the suse-kde3 list. I have been completely
impressed with kde3 on Leap 42.3 and Leap 15.0. It has been virtually
for me and blisteringly fast.

I'll see if I can load it (as long as it doesn't have a monstrous dependency

David, thank you for your answer.

I played with texstudio a little bit and found that:

The problem occurs only in KDE3 desktop, if I login to KDE4 or IceWM

I also built the program in my system. The build and install process
went without any problem, but the own build also freezes KDE3.

Thanks again
