I have VL 5.9 STD RC2

Outpout of the command :

Quote
root:# kde-config --prefix
/usr

Does that mean I have a problem with KDE libs ?

Based on the error messages you were getting, it appears that you were trying to build something to go into /opt/kde, whereas the kde supporting libraries are located in /usr for VL 5.9. Here's a quick tip in building KDE apps when you are not sure of what the prefix is. Instead of passing an absolute prefix to the configure script, pass the following instead:

Code: [Select]
--prefix=`kde-config --prefix`
Note the backticks surrounding the kde-config --prefix command. The backticks tell the shell that it's supposed to take the results of executing "kde-config --prefix" and use that for the prefix variable.

HTH,
John

running amarok installed from Slackware12 package (using gslapt) :
Quote
root:# amarokapp
amarokapp: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libkhtml.so.4: undefined symbol: _ZN9KLineEdit17mouseReleaseEventEP11QMouseEvent
I got some very similar errors with the kdebase and kdelibs currently in the 5.9 repo's. I got me the kdebase and -libs from slackware 12 and now it's working just dandy. I'm not sure what's up with the ones in our repo, but I think they're faulty.
Most music on my soundcloud page was arranged in programs running on VL.

Can you check again with the kdebase and kdelibs in the repo to make sure we have them fixed?

Thanks again Headacher, but using #./configure --prefix=`kde-config --prefix` does not change anything, I get exactly the same error, looking again for KDE libraries in /opt  ???

I just tried KDE base package from VL testing repos (3.5.8-i586-4vl59) and get absolutely same errors. Impossible to load amarok, using the package provided in the same repo :

amarokapp: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libkhtml.so.4: undefined symbol: _ZN9KLineEdit17mouseReleaseEventEP11QMouseEvent
Amarok splashscreen appears for about half a second...

You have to upgrade kdelibs. That fixed the exact same error for me.

The compiz-fusion on ATI post was split to it's own thread in the proper place. Remember to try and keep thread "contamination" down folks, it leads to more focused attention and answers. Better for searches too... ;)
