I installed it though pkg_add -r kdegraphics3. Install seemed to go all
right. Then the software added itself to the K menu. But KPDF doesn't
launch. When started from the console, I get :
/libexec/ld-elf.so.1: Shared object "libidn.so.16" not found, required
My guess is that there is version mixup involving one of the
dependencies used by KPDF. Any idea which dependency is concerned or how
I can bail out of this ?
