Hanno Mueller from the 22nd of December may help You.

this may help you. I got a similar error message when I installed another
application (licq) *after* I had installed kde2, that other application
depended on and thus and installed an earlier version of the QT libraries.

The problem was created because licq installed libqt2 from the Debian main
archive and overwrote a symlink used (and needed) by libqt2.2 from
kde.tdyc.com and all other kde2 packages.

Check the libqt* symbolic links in /usr/lib, they should all link to the
same library. After I had fixed that, things were back to normal.
