KDE 3.x is stable and has been running on Mac OS X for quite a while. Unlike KDE 4, however, they require an X11 server to operate.

Installation

Fink

KDE 3.5.9 is currently available in Fink stable. To install the basic desktop, type (in a console window):

 fink selfupdate-rsync
 fink install kdebase3-unified

KDE 3.5.10 is in Fink unstable. First, enable unstable following the instructions in the Fink FAQ, then for the complete KDE desktop, type (in a console window):

 fink selfupdate-rsync
 fink install bundle-kde-ssl

If for some reason you can't use selfupdate-rsync, try selfupdate-cvs instead.

Note that KDE itself on Fink is very solid. It just hasn't been moved in its entirety to Fink stable because of issues moving a few of its dependencies to stable. It is recommended that you install the latest KDE from Fink unstable.

MacPorts

KDE 3.5.10 is also in MacPorts. To install the complete KDE desktop, type (in a console window):

sudo port install kde
