The KDE Development Platform contains a number of KDE modules that form the foundation for all KDE Software.

If you are only interested in developing a KDE Application and not the KDE Development Platform itself then your distribution packages may be sufficient for these requirements, but Unstable development may require the latest Unstable versions to be built from source.

Required Steps

You need to have completed the following steps:

KDE Libraries

KDE PIM Libraries

KDE Runtime


The KDE SDK Module is not strictly speaking part of the KDE Development Platform, but it contains many useful tools and scripts that make developing KDE Software a lot easier and so is recommended to always be built or installed.
