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</code>, try <syntaxhighlight lang="text">selfupdate-cvs</code> 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.
 
=== [http://www.macports.org/ MacPorts] ===
 
KDE 3.5.10 is also in MacPorts.  To install the complete KDE desktop, type (in a console window):
 
 sudo port install kde
