In openSUSE 10.2 and newer, you can install packages using Zypper: sudo zypper install <package-name>

In older releases of SUSE, you can use YaST: su yast -i <packagename>

Required Packages

The packages you will need to install are: alsa-devel automoc4 avahi-devel patch (needed to build qt-copy) cups-devel kde4-filesystem libbz2-devel avahi-compat-mDNSResponder-devel hal-devel xorg-x11-devel libxml2-devel kdesdk3 clucene-core-devel boost-devel libjpeg-devel liblrdf-devel libpng-devel libxslt-devel libredland-devel Mesa-devel giflib-devel subversion gcc gcc-c++ gmp-devel (needed to build kdesupport) xine-devel libgpgme-devel (needed to build kdepimlibs) pcre-devel

Optional Packages

You can skip the manual and painful installation kdesupport and its dependencies ( Qt 4.3, CMake 2.4.6, DBus, Hal, clucene-core, Strigi, Soprano and other Nepomuk dependencies) by adding the KDE:KDE4 repository from the openSUSE Build Service to your installation sources.

For openSUSE 10.2 and newer add this Repository to your Install Source (Yast)

For older versions of SUSE Linux do: su installation_sources -a[YOUR SUSE LINUX VERSION]

Build it


Now install cmake, in this example 2.6.2:

tar xvzf cmake-2.6.2.tar.gz

distro packages

Now install the following packages: dbus-1-devel libqt4-devel libqca2-devel libsoprano-devel libqimageblitz-devel strigi strigi-devel

CMake binary packages for openSUSE are available from the KDE:KDE4 repository as well as from the openSUSE build service.

There are a lot more packages that are needed to satisfy the config-check, such as libusb-devel, bison etc., so look out for the config notifications and install accordingly. Please remember to skip any instructions that refer to kdesupport below. Start to compile with kdelibs.

Return to building KDE 4.
