1. did you install qt3 packages ?
check /etc/profile if it sets KDEDIR, QTDIR and WINDOWMANAGER
or in failsafe mode:
me@host (bash): echo $KDEDIR
me@host (bash): echo $QTDIR
me@host (bash): echo $WINDOWMANAGER
they should be set to the values given above. Sometimes you have a
/usr/lib/qt -> /usr/lib/qtX.XX
Maybe you adjust the symbolic link /usr/lib/qt to point to
/usr/lib/qt3.0.4 (or similar)
You can set them in /etc/profile by adding the lines
3. kde3 should be in wmlist (/usr/X11R6/bin/wmlist or which wmlist)
you can just add the string "kde3" in the script in the list of
4. check /etc/ld.so.conf
are the directories "/usr/lib/qt3", "/usr/lib/qt3/lib" and
"/opt/kde3/lib" in the file?
I suggest to add them at the top of the file.
5. run ldconfig
run ldconfig (as root) to update the linker cache
root@host (bash): ldconfig
6. Start X with kde as root
Maybe you should run kde as user root first, so kde can setup everything
Hope this helps,
hav anyone experienced to install KDE 3 on Linux SuSE PPC 7.3? I downloaded KDE from suse
site, but after installation with yast the login is always with KDE 2.
Infact KDE not update the old version but it addict itself on /opt/kde3. Plus, if I start
kde 3 from failsafe it run in a very slow mode, such KDE 2.
Anyone has some advice?
Thanks in advance.
