    Remove /usr/local/lib64/libfreetype*, and it should work.
    If this is built for 13.1, it is bound to break the Tumbleweed system anyway.

    And just to be sure, check what else may be in /usr/local/lib(64):
    Code:
    ls -l /usr/local/lib*
    (and probably also /usr/local/bin/ or other subfolders, /usr/local/ overrides the standard locations...)

    wow... After removing the /usr/local/lib64/libfreetype* startkde worked. Now I will try to log out and log in again.

    ls -l /usr/local/lib* outputs,

    /usr/local/lib:
    total 0

    /usr/local/lib64:
    total 4

    Great!

    I would still recommend to look into /usr/local/bin/ as well. If you (or someone else) compiled and installed freetype manually, there likely are some programs in there as well, which now likely won't work any more (this may cause problems for other software if it tries to run one of those programs).

    Also, there may (and likely will) be other remnants of freetype in /usr/local/...
