Main Page

Konqi and the KDE community!

Welcome to the KDE Community Wiki! KDE is a world-wide community of software engineers, artists, writers, translators, and creators who are committed to Free Software development. If that's you, you are in the right place!

This is the working area for community members and contributors. It contains information to collaborate on projects and goals. To start, read Welcome to KDE.

This wiki contains guides for getting involved with the community, making a living contributing to KDE, setting up a development environment for building KDE software, reporting bugs, translating software, and getting in touch with different KDE projects and teams.

If you are interested in how to use KDE Frameworks and libraries for your software, please take a peek at the KDE Developer Platform and the TechBase Wiki for guides and tutorials.

Before editing the wiki, look at Help:Contribute#Organisation to see where to add content. KDE operates two other wikis that are listed at

Cross-Project Teams

These teams work on areas common across lots of projects, sharing their expertise and working on tasks that individual projects often don't have the resources to manage on their own.


These are pages for specific projects. These can be pieces or collections of software, specific websites, or other relatively self-contained areas of work.


These are groups that come together based on shared experiences rather than because they are working on the same thing.
