This shouldn't happen. It means your installation of KOffice got broken
somehow (either in the building or sometime later).

Ditto, although this could have happened if you removed ImageMagick out from
under KOffice.

Since it looks like just KOffice is broken, you could just reinstall that. I
would, however, strongly recommend you use the packages if they're

If that doesn't solve the problem, send an email to kde at and
include details of how you installed KDE, along with the output
of "ls /var/db/pkg".
