Konqi and the KDE community

Welcome to the KDE Community Wiki! This is the working area for community members and contributors and contains information they need to collaborate on projects and goals. This wiki also has guides for getting involved with the community, setting up a development environment for building KDE software, reporting bugs, translating products, and getting in touch with the different KDE teams and projects.

If you are interested in how to use KDE Frameworks and libraries for your software, please take a peek at the TechBase wiki for guides and tutorials.

Before editing the wiki, look at Help:Contribute#Organisation to see where to add content. KDE operates two other wikis, listed at

Cross-Project Teams

These teams work on areas common across lots of projects, sharing their expertise and working on tasks that individual projects often don't have the resources to manage on their own.


These are pages for specific projects. These can be pieces or collections of software, specific websites or other relatively self-contained areas of work.


These are groups that come together based on shared experiences, rather than because they are working on the same thing.
