This article describes how to get a build environment for kdelibs from KDE 4 generically, i.e. not bound to a specific distribution.

Contents

CMake

wget http://www.cmake.org/files/v2.4/cmake-2.4.6.tar.gz
tar -zxf cmake-2.4.6.tar.gz
mkdir cmake-build
cd cmake-build 
../cmake-2.4.6/bootstrap
make
sudo make install

DBUS

wget http://dbus.freedesktop.org/releases/dbus/dbus-1.0.2.tar.gz
tar -xvzf dbus-1.0.2.tar.gz
cd dbus-1.0.2/
./configure --prefix=$DBUSDIR --localstatedir=/var
make
sudo make install
sudo dbus-uuidgen --ensure
wget http://dbus.freedesktop.org/releases/dbus-glib/dbus-glib-0.74.tar.gz
tar -xvzf dbus-glib-0.74.tar.gz
cd dbus-glib-0.74/
./configure --prefix=$DBUSDIR
make
sudo make install
cd
sudo chown -R kde-devel:kde-devel * || sudo chown -R kde-devel:users *

Qt

The recipe

svn co https://svn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/qt-copy
cd qt-copy
./apply_patches
./configure -qdbus -qt-gif -no-exceptions -debug -fast \
-prefix $QTDIR -nomake examples -nomake demos && make -j4 && echo success

Watch out that "success" is printed, otherwise you will need to correct your build.

What is happening

This downloads the qt source code, applies some patches and configures the build. With -qdbus, it is asserted that the dbus module will be built.

TroubleShooting

If you get an error message that libdbus-0.62 is missing, install dbus-0.62 and try again.
