Installing KDE software via MacPorts/Fink/Homebrew

Installing using MacPorts

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:

Installing using Fink

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)

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

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
