< FreeBSD | Setup FreeBSD KDE Ports You can install KDE software (KDE Plasma, KDE Applications, and KDE Extragear 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 Packages are available from the official FreeBSD package repository. Installing Plasma5 and Applications The meta-port for KDE Frameworks 5 is called x11/kf5-frameworks, but each individual framework can be installed separately. The meta-port for KDE Plasma5 is called x11/plasma5-plasma, but each individual component can be installed separately. There is no KDE Appications meta port. The closest thing is x11/kde-baseapps which pulls in the essentials. Each application can be installed individually. There is a fat metaport x11/kde5. To install KDE packages on supported FreeBSD versions (10.3 and later, and generally x64): # pkg install x11/kde5 # For the Qt5-based KDE experience Retrieved from "https://community.kde.org/index.php?title=FreeBSD/Setup/Ports&oldid=82537" This page was last edited on 19 January 2019, at 17:02.
