This article shows how to download, build, install and start KDE 4 from subversion. It consolidates howtos from various sites, e.g.

This topic shows one way that works. It does not intend to explain the obvious background behind it.

To reduce complexity, we use the bash-shell (standard) throughout the tutorial.
 
 
 
== Become the user kde-devel ==
 
useradd kde-devel
 
mkdir /home/kde-devel
 
passwd kde-devel
 
chown kde-devel:kde-devel /home/kde-devel 2>/dev/null || \
 
chown kde-devel:users /home/kde-devel
 
 
 
Switch to the user kde-devel: (the dash also changes to the new home directory)
 
su - kde-devel
 
 
 
== Set Environment Variables ==
 
You have to add some environment variables - add these lines to {{path|~/.bashrc}}.
 
export YACC='byacc -d'
 
export QTDIR=$HOME/qt-unstable
 
export KDEDIR=$HOME/kde
 
export KDEDIRS=$KDEDIR
 
export DBUSDIR=$KDEDIR
 
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$DBUSDIR/lib/pkgconfig:$PKG_CONFIG_PATH
 
export PATH=$QTDIR/bin:$KDEDIR/bin:$PATH
 
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$QTDIR/lib:$KDEDIR/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
 
## Uncomment if dbus doesn't work
 
#alias dbusstart="eval `PATH=$DBUSDIR/bin \
 
#$DBUSDIR/bin/dbus-launch --auto-syntax`"
 
function cmakekde { cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$HOME/kde \
 
-DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=debugfull [email protected] && make VERBOSE=1 && make install; }
 
 
 
== Check out the software ==
 
svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/qt-copy
 
svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/KDE/kdelibs
 
wget http://www.cmake.org/files/v2.4/cmake-2.4.3.tar.gz
 
wget http://dbus.freedesktop.org/releases/dbus/dbus-0.94.tar.gz
 
 
 
== Build D-Bus ==
 
tar xvfz dbus-0.94.tar.gz
 
cd dbus-0.94/
 
./configure --disable-qt --disable-qt3 --prefix=$DBUSDIR \
 
--localstatedir=/var && make && make install
 
dbus-uuidgen --ensure
 
 
 
== Build Qt ==
 
cd ~/qt-copy && \
 
./configure -qt-gif -no-exceptions -debug -fast \
 
-prefix $QTDIR -qdbus && make && make install
 
 
 
== Build and Install CMake ==
 
 
 
The default prefix is <code>/usr/local</code>, make sure {{path|/usr/local/bin}} is in your <code>$PATH</code>.
 
 
 
tar zxf cmake-2.4.3.tar.gz
 
mkdir cmake-build
 
cd cmake-build
 
../cmake-2.4.3/bootstrap
 
make
 
sudo make install
 
 
 
== Build kdelibs ==
 
cd ~/
 
mkdir kdelibs-build
 
cd kdelibs-build
 
cmakekde ../kdelibs
 
 
 
=== Troubleshooting ===
 
If you have problems compiling this, first make sure the following commands can be executed: aclocal, autoconf, autoheader, gcc, g++, pkg-config.
 
 
 
; Note: If you get "Could NOT find GIF", install the devel package of <code>libungif</code> (the actual name may vary on distribution).
 
 
 
If the problems persist, try the make-option <code>--keep-going</code>
 
 
 
== Build kdepimlibs ==
 
Before ''kdebase'' you need to install ''kdepimlibs''
 
 
 
cd
 
svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/KDE/kdepimlibs
 
mkdir kdepimlibs-build
 
cd kdepimlibs-build
 
cmakekde ../kdepimlibs
 
 
 
=== Troubleshooting ===
 
To compile against kdelibs (not the snapshot) add
 
set(KDE4_IGNORE_DONTPORT TRUE)
 
to the {{path|CMakeLists.txt}} before <code>find_package(KDE4 REQUIRED)</code>
 
 
 
== Build kdebase ==
 
You may need kdebase for some kioslaves.
 
cd
 
svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/KDE/kdebase
 
mkdir kdebase-build
 
cd kdebase-build
 
cmakekde ../kdebase
 
 
 
=== Troubleshooting ===
 
If you have troubles compiling this:
 
* Make sure you have the <code>libxss headers</code> installed. (Usually you got undefined references on xscreensaver objects if you haven't those headers)
 
* <code>which meinproc</code> has to deliver {{path|/home/kde-devel/kde/bin/meinproc}}
 
 
 
== Start KDE 4 Programs ==
 
To start the desktop environment itself, do:
 
X :1 & export DISPLAY=:1
 
startkde
 
Maybe you are logged in as your normal user (not kde-devel), want to stay in your current environment (KDE 3.5, gnome, whatever) and start a KDE 4 program. To start only kwrite from KDE 4, do:
 
 
kwrite
