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

Contents

The user kde-devel

useradd -m kde-devel
passwd kde-devel

Put the special .bashrc into kde-devel's home dir.

cd ~kde-devel
echo "export DBUSDIR=/usr" >> .bashrc
echo "alias make=make" >> .bashrc

CMake

cd
wget http://www.cmake.org/files/v2.6/cmake-2.6.1.tar.gz
tar -zxf cmake-2.6.1.tar.gz
mkdir cmake-build
cd cmake-build 
../cmake-2.6.1/bootstrap
make
sudo make install

DBUS

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

Qt

The recipe

cd svn co https://svn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/qt-copy cd qt-copy ./apply_patches ./configure -dbus -qt-gif -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. After this is done, make sure qdbus works correctly, e.g. it should look like this:

tweedleburg:~ # qdbus
:1.0
org.freedesktop.DBus
tweedleburg:~ #

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.

kdesupport

cd
svn co https://svn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/kdesupport
cd kdesupport 
cmakekde

kdelibs

cd
mkdir -p kde/src
cd kde/src
svn co https://svn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/KDE/kdelibs
cd kdelibs
cmakekde

What happens here

As kdelibs requires an out-of-source-build, we give it what it wants, the directories kde/src/kdelibs and kde/build/kdelibs. /kde/build/kdelibs will be created by cmakekde.

kdepimlibs

cd 
svn co https://svn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/KDE/kdepimlibs
cd kdepimlibs
cmakekde
