Default qtfm - xcb error

New install of OpenBSD 7.2 (added nano)

qtfm worked a couple of times after it was added (via pkg_add).

Now, when opened, in both root and user ...

"Warning: Could not find the Qt platform plugin "xcb" in "" ((null):0, (null))
Fatal: This application failed to start because no Qt platform plugin could be initialized."

The error output recommended re-installation. Tried that. No change.

qtfm version is 6.2.1

pkg_info | less
shows qt5-5.15.8p0, qt6-6.4.2, py3-qt5-5.15.7p1 installed.

find /usr/ Path/ -type l -ls |grep -i 'xcb' shows ... 
/usr/local/bin/python3-config.YgBcLLwTNy -> python3.10-config
/usr/local/bin/platforms -> /usr/local/lib/qt5/plugins/platforms/libqxcb.so
.Xresources file changes:
xrdb -merge $HOME/.Xresources

# set your background color
xsetroot -solid dimgray

# sadly, xclock has a bug where the font selection is ignored when UTF-8
# is enabled, so we unset LANG here.
LANG= xclock -strftime "%a %e %b %Y %H:%M" &

# disable system beep
xset b off

# start cwm!
exec cwm
Any ideas, please?
