KDE on Mac OSX
This is the community page for the KDE on Mac team. It is also a stand-in for the http://mac.kde.org website which is currently very outdated and so has been taken offline.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
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.
Installing using Fink
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.
Some KDE applications provide a standalone installer, usually in a Qt only mode and missing some KDE integration features.
Many of these TechBase pages are outdated, most of the content is no longer valid and should be moved to community and/or deleted. Please use with care.
The old website can still be found in subversion
