Kate & KWrite Krita Marble Virtual Globe Getting in Touch IRC: #kde-mac on Freenode Mailing list: https://mail.kde.org/mailman/listinfo/kde-mac Forums: http://forum.kde.org/viewforum.php?f=60 Building KF5 based software Install Qt (use the official Qt installer, recommended version Qt >= 5.6) Install Python >= 3.5 (using the pkg installer from http://python.org) Install homebrew and get some basic dependencies (http://brew.sh/) /usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)" brew install cmake wget p7zip gettext ninja Prepare some build directory in your home directory, here we assume: mkdir ~/kf Switch to this build dir cd ~/kf Get the unix3 branch of KDE emerge git clone --branch unix3 kde:emerge Copy Mac OS X config template to right location, should be OK to use out of the box mkdir etc cp emerge/kdesettings.mac etc/kdesettings.ini Setup environment (path must contain your Qt install, here 5.7 default location and brew's gettext) export PATH=/Users/cullmann/Qt5.7.0/5.7/clang_64/bin:/usr/local/Cellar/gettext/0.19.7/bin:$PATH . emerge/kdeenv.sh In this shell, now emerge is usable, e.g. to build Kate with all dependencies: emerge kate To create a app bundle (+ dmg file), you need to have the breeze-icons around: emerge breeze-icons To do deploy all things, unfortunately at the moment you need a patched macdeployqt. Example scripty for kate can be found on kate.git/mac/emerge-deploy.sh Installing KDE software via MacPorts/Fink/Homebrew Installing using MacPorts http://www.macports.org/ As of June 2016, the latest available and supported version is KDE SC 4.14.3. Instructions are provided on TechBase for installing a development environment using MacPorts. If you want a user installation then just skip the final 'Configure your KDE development environment' section. Additional information: KDE Techbase page on getting started with MacPorts Wiki page on macports.org about KDE software in general Wiki page on macports.org about current problems with KDE software Installing using Fink http://www.finkproject.org/ As of June 2016, the latest available and supported version is KDE SC 4.14.6. The Fink packages allow you to install KDE SC 4 as either Qt/X11 or Qt/Mac (native) packages by selecting either packages ending in "-x11" or "-mac", for example "kdebase4-x11" and "kdebase4-mac". Additionally, the Fink packages allow the running of the Plasma desktop in X11 mode. Just install "kdebase4-workspace-x11" to install it. The Fink KDE software packages will be installed in /sw/opt/kde4/x11 or /sw/opt/kde4/mac respectively. They also are able to start D-Bus for you as long as you run "/sw/bin/init.sh" normally, or when you open a terminal, if you have run the path setup script in the Fink installer. Installing using Homebrew Installing KDevelop and Kate using Homebrew (KDE4-based) https://github.com/adymo/homebrew-kde As of June 2016, the latest available and supported version is KDE SC 4.14.3. You can tap this repository into your homebrew. It installs the following apps and all their dependencies: KDevelop Kate Konversation Massif Visualizer Please carefully follow installation instructions on that above page. Installing KDE Frameworks 5 using Homebrew https://github.com/haraldF/homebrew-kf5 As of June 2016, the latest available and supported version is KDE SC 5.22.0. You can tap this repository into your homebrew. It adds KDE Frameworks 5 packages (and all their dependencies) and some applications that already make use of them (e.g. Kate and Kwrite). As of March 28th, 2014 the repository still is experimental as the developer tries to get them into a working state. Hints and patches are welcome. Please carefully follow installation instructions. Running KDE Applications Please see the distribution notes for MacPorts / Fink / Homebrew formulas you are using. You may need to run the following steps once after installation: sudo chown -R $USER ~/Library/Preferences/KDE sudo launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.freedesktop.dbus-system.plist Sometimes, Installer.app fails to run the post-install. If things are acting funny, try running these two commands in a terminal: sudo launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchAgents/org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist /opt/local/bin/kbuildsycoca4 Retrieved from "https://community.kde.org/index.php?title=Mac&oldid=72303" Content is available under Creative Commons License SA 4.0 unless otherwise noted.
