It is also a stand-in for the http://mac.kde.org website which is currently very outdated and so has been taken offline. Installing KDE on Mac OSX KDE does not currently provide binary downloads for Mac OSX. Instead you need to build KDE for yourself from source. The easiest way to do this is to use one of the Mac build systems which will automatically resolve all the dependencies for you. Unfortunately, this can be a very long process, taking up to 2 or more days. Installing using MacPorts http://www.macports.org/ As at 23 June 2011, MacPorts has KDE 4.6.4 and KDE 3.5.10 available for installation. Note that KDE3 is unsupported by both KDE and MacPorts. Instructions are provided on TechBase for installing a development environment using MacPorts. If you just want a user installation then just skip the final 'Configure your KDE development environment' section. Installing using Fink http://www.finkproject.org/ As at 23 June 2011, MacPorts has KDE 4.4.1 and KDE 3.5.10 available for installation. Note that KDE3 is unsupported by both KDE and Fink. Applications Some KDE applications provide a standalone installer, usually in a Qt only mode and missing some KDE integration features. Marble Virtual Globe Running KDE Applications The applications should be run from the Finder, you can find them in /Applications/KDE4. Sometimes, Installer.app fails to run the post-install. If things are acting funny, try running these two commands in a terminal: launchctl load /Library/LaunchAgents/org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist /opt/local/bin/kbuildsycoca4 Getting Help IRC: #kde-mac Mailing list: https://mail.kde.org/mailman/listinfo/kde-mac Forums: http://forum.kde.org/viewforum.php?f=60 Bugs: bugs.kde.org TechBase Pages Many of these TechBase pages are outdated, most of the content is no longer valid and should be moved to community and/or deleted.
