If something requires a library that is not present it simply will not work (as in, will not even start). There is no mystery or ambiguity to it. If the applications you mention run, then you are fine. You can check what libraries a binary needs to link with ldd. For example: > ldd /opt/VirtualBox/VirtualBox linux-vdso.so.1 => ...

Plasma 5.2 is out and it is considered a stable version. Of course there are still things to iron out, and most plasmoids and some programs are not ported yet. AFAIK no distro is using it by default yet. You can easily install it in Arch, Kubuntu etc. I've tried both those (I'm a long standing Arch user) and for now the Kubuntu implementation seems more ...

For just one file at a time, or the very occasional file, I think a whole encrypted drive or home with EncFS/eCryptFS/dm-crypt/LUKS would be overkill (but would work excellent in case of theft).

KDM is a display manager: it's the program where you type your credentials and get logged in. It happens that both Gnome and KDE provide a display manager, but the choice of display manager is independent from the choice of desktop environment. The desktop environment is a user preference while the display manager is a system preference. Modern display ...

AFAIK, there isn't stable a versions of Plasma 5 available yet (I think it's still a work in progress). Arch Linux for example, has preliminary support for Plasma 5, but as of now there are still some issues. If you want, you can read the entry in their wiki about it, for more information. In their forum, there is also a very active topic.
