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 It is also a stand-in for the http://mac.kde.org website which is currently very outdated and so has been taken offline.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.

Instructions are provided on TechBase for [installing a development environment using MacPorts. If you just want a user installation then just skip the final Development Environment step.

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.

Applications

Some KDE applications provide a standalone installer, usually in a Qt only mode and missing some KDE integration features.
