Contents

[edit] Introduction

openSUSE has a very strong and active KDE team with a lot of information on their own wiki:

[edit] Required Packages

Use the following command to install the needed packages:

zypper si -d kdelibs4

[edit] Build

This section describes how you can get kde to compile so that you can log in graphically (using kdm, the KDE display manager) and call konqueror (contained in KDEBASE, KDE's base package).

[edit] kdesupport

You can install kdesupport and its dependencies from official repository

Install kdesupport from openSUSE:

zypper install libqca2-devel libsoprano-devel libqimageblitz-devel strigi-devel

Please remember to skip any instructions from Getting_Started/Build that refer to kdesupport. Start to compile with kdelibs.

[edit] Using openSUSE Unstable Repositories

openSUSE, via its Build Service, provides a so-called unstable repository which contains weekly snapshots from KDE SVN trunk. These allow you to run a system install of unstable, but does not allow you to keep a stable system install while testing unstable in parallel.

[edit] Requirements

You need a supported openSUSE version, that is, at the time of writing, openSUSE 12.3 or 13.1 or openSUSE Factory (the always-on-development branch of openSUSE).

[edit] Installing packages from the unstable repository

Add the repository manually and perform an installation from the command line.


[edit] Addition of the repository

Add the repository. To do so, enter as root

zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Unstable:/SC/YOUR_openSUSE_VERSION/ [ALIAS]

where YOUR_openSUSE_VERSION is either openSUSE_12.3 or openSUSE_Factory depending on what you are running. And ALIAS is whatever name you want to assign to the repository.

After that upgrade the packages to the unstable version:

zypper dup --from [ALIAS]

[edit] Post-installation steps

You may want to add some additional repositories to have compatible non KDE SC packages available.

zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Extra/YOUR_openSUSE_VERSION/_KDE_Unstable_SC/ [ALIAS]

followed by the installation the packages you need:

zypper install [package]

Return to Building KDE.
