[kde-linux] Digikam and Gwenview cannot find kipi plugins

Slackware 13.37, KDE 4.5.5 (as supplied by Slackware).
I have both Digikam (1.9) and kipi-plugins (1.9) installed from
Slackware packages. Neither digikam nor gwenview can see any plugins.
Tried re-installing both digikam and kipi-plugins, but I still have the
same outcome - no kipi-plugins available.
The digikam splash screen provides a few progress messages among which
is "loading kipi plugins", but nothing seems to result from this.
One clue might be this output which comes from running gwenview at the
gwenview(14654)/kdecore (trader) KServiceTypeTrader::defaultOffers:
KServiceTypeTrader: serviceType "KIPI/Plugin" not found
This suggests that kipi-plugins should have registered itself as a KDE4
service (presumably during installation of kipi-plugins). There may be
something in my KDE4 setup which is preventing this.
Any clues as to how I may be able to correct this?
