The error is:

package 'libgraph' not found

libgraph was the old graphviz library, retired quite awhile ago now in favor of the libcgraph library. libgraph was deprecated in graphviz 2.30.0 in January 2013 and removed in graphviz 2.36.0 in January 2014. kgraphviewer will have to be rewritten to use libcgraph instead. Did you already check if a newer version of kgraphviewer exists with this change already made?
