I am installing Arch for the first time.
Successfully installed base packages from 0.6Widget, xorg (config file from hwd) and kdebase.
X server starts and works fine but can´t start kde.
Just added exec startkde to .xinitrc and startx generates:
kde-config: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
xset: bad font path element (#96), posible causes are:
Directory does not exist or has wrong permissions
Directory missing fonts.dir
Incorrect font server address or syntax
startkde: Starting up...
kreadconfig: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Found installed libstdc++.so.5
How can I upgrade to libstdc++.so.6?
Thanks in advance
Did you do #pacman -Syu ?
That will upgrade every package on your system. That might take care of it.
The normal installation incantation for KDE is:
pacman -S kde
(assuming that you've already done 'pacman -Sy').
This will install a large number of files (~15) and is a hefty download (almost 200Mb).
I don't believe that you have enough of KDE by installing just kdebase.
the usual error
after install please run pacman -Syu
after that kde should run fine
My fault was not to run pacman -Syu to update the system.
Installing only kdebase works fine.
Sorry for the newbie kind of question
Many thanks to all
