|The KDE on Solaris project, also KDE on OpenSolaris, was active from around the year 2000 until nearly 2014, when the remaining team members ceased active development of the KDE packages. This page should be considered mostly of historical interest, although nothing stops anyone from trying to re-start KDE packaging on a descendant of Solaris such as IllumOS.|

When installing one of the latest development builds of KDE4 on OpenSolaris, there's a number of changes to do to make the use of the desktop more convenient. Some of the suggested changes are below.
This page also lists some yet unresolved and highly visible problems with no workaround.
See also the list of known bugs.
After login an akonadi error window is shown. You can get rid of the errors by calling
kwriteconfig --file kres-migratorrc --group Migration --key Enabled --type bool false
although a patch would be better.
pfexec chmod +s /opt/kde4/lib/kde4/libexec/kcheckpass
---Tracked as 184465. xlock can be used as a workaround. It could also be convenient to undefine the Ctrl+Alt+L shortcut and use
System Settings -> Input Actions
To disable default shortcut:
System Settings -> Global Keyboard Shortcuts -> Run Command Interface -> "Lock Session" (remove the shortcut)
To enable Ctrl+Alt+L as Input Action to spawn xlock:
System Settings -> Input Actions right-click the left pane -> New -> Global Shortcut -> Command/URL Trigger -> define shortcut Action -> Command/URL -> xlock
When VirtualBox additions are installed, VirtualBox has to enable video acceleration or kwin crashes.
