FreeBSD KDE Ports

You can install KDE software (either the KDE4 Software Collection, or KDE Frameworks 5 -- but not yet KDE Plasma or KDE Applications) from both packages and ports. It's a lot faster to install from packages, and compiling KDE software will also take a lot of disk space and memory.


Packages are available from the official FreeBSD package repository.

Installing KDE4
The meta-port for KDE4 is called x11/kde4, but there are also dependent ports for the larger components such as x11/kde4-workspace.
Installing KDE Frameworks 5
The meta-port for KDE Frameworks 5 is called x11/kf5-frameworks, but each individual framework can be installed separately.

To install KDE packages on supported FreeBSD versions (10.3 and later, and generally x64):

 # pkg install x11/kde4                     # For KDE4
 # pkg install x11/kf5-frameworks  # For KDE Frameworks 5
