KDE is designed to be portable and hence to compile with a large variety of GNU/Linux, UNIX, Windows and MacOS compilers. However, KDE is advancing very rapidly and the ability of native compilers on various systems to compile KDE depends on users of those systems reporting compile problems to the responsible developers. In addition, the C++ implementation in gcc, the most popular KDE compiler, has been advancing rapidly, and has also recently undergone a major redesign. As a result, KDE will not compile properly with older versions of gcc or their newest unreleased version. Compiler support table Compiler Version Status Comment gcc 3.2 and older Not supported 3.3 Supported 3.4 Supported 4.0 Supported 4.0.0 is not supported 4.1 Supported 4.2 Supported 4.3 Experimental May or may not work, but patches are accepted Microsoft VisualStudio 6.0 Not supported .NET 2002 Not supported .NET 2003 Supported .NET 2005 Supported Including the Express version .NET 2008 Supported No reports yet of success, but there shouldn't be problems SunStudio 11 Unknown 12 Ongoing Support is being worked on Software Requirements Basic Package Level Description Explanation Modules Qt >= 4.3 Required Qt is the C++ cross-platform GUI toolkit upon which the great majority of KDE is built. Qt is required by all KDE modules. kdelibs, kdepimlibs, kdebase, kdeadmin, kdeartwork, kdebindings, kdeedu, kdegames, kdegraphics, kdemultimedia, kdenetwork, kdepim, kdesdk, kdetoys, kdeutils, koffice, kdevelop FreeType Recommended A Free, High-Quality, and Portable Font Engine Better DVI support in okular kdegraphics FooPackage Recommended Foo description Foo explanation kdemodule, kdemodule, kdemodule Help Package Level Description Explanation Modules libxml2 >= 2.4.8 Recommended Libxml provides an XML parser and toolkit. XML is a metalanguage to design markup languages, such as HTML. Libxml is used for reading KDE documentation. Note that even though earlier versions of libxml2 may work, versions 2.4.26 through 2.4.28 have a bug which prevents their use in KDE. kdelibs, kdepimlibs, kdebase, kdeadmin, kdeartwork, kdebindings, kdeedu, kdegames, kdegraphics, kdemultimedia, kdenetwork, kdepim, kdesdk, kdetoys, kdeutils, koffice, kdevelop FooPackage Recommended Foo description Foo explanation kdemodule, kdemodule, kdemodule Hardware Package Level Description Explanation Modules CUPS >= 1.1.9 Optional CUPS (the Common Unix Printing System) is a modern printing architecture for UNIX systems. CUPS provides enhanced printing administration, printing options and usability to all KDE applications. KDE provides tools to configure CUPS. kdelibs, kdebase FooPackage Recommended Foo description Foo explanation kdemodule, kdemodule, kdemodule Networking Package Level Description Explanation Modules pppd Optional Pppd is a PPP (Point-to-Point Protocol) daemon. PPP is a common protocol for connecting to the Internet via a modem. Kppp uses pppd to connect to the Internet using a computer POTS modem. kdenetwork LibVNCServer / LibVNCClient >= 0.9.1 (download) Optional LibVNCServer / LibVNCClient is a library for VNC support. KRDC uses LibVNCClient for VNC client support. Krfb uses LibVNCServer for VNC server support. kdenetwork rdesktop >= 1.5.0 Optional rdesktop is a Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) client. KRDC uses rdesktop for RDP support. kdenetwork FooPackage Recommended Foo description Foo explanation kdemodule, kdemodule, kdemodule Browsing Package Level Description Explanation Modules Java >= 1.3 Recommended Java is a programming language designed for use in the distributed environment of the Internet. Since Netscape integrated Java into its browser, Java has become a popular language for websites. Some websites require the use of Java for some or all of their services. In addition, Java bindings exist for KDE which enables writing KDE applications in the Java language. kdebase, kdebindings FooPackage Recommended Foo description Foo explanation kdemodule, kdemodule, kdemodule Security Package Level Description Explanation Modules OpenSSL >= 0.9.6 Recommended OpenSSL is a robust, commercial-grade, full-featured and Open Source toolkit implementing the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL v2/v3) and Transport Layer Security (TLS v1) protocols as well as a full-strength general purpose cryptography library. KDE uses OpenSSL for the bulk of secure communications, including secure web browsing via HTTPS. kdelibs, kdebase, kdenetwork, kdepim FooPackage Recommended Foo description Foo explanation kdemodule, kdemodule, kdemodule Graphics Package Level Description Explanation Modules OpenGL Recommended OpenGL is an industry-standard API for developing portable, interactive 2D and 3D graphics applications. The 3D hardware acceleration available through the OpenGL API is used in applications ranging from graphics and modellers to screensavers and video players. kdelibs, kdebase, kdegraphics, kdemultimedia Poppler Recommended PDF rendering library Adds PDF support to okular kdegraphics Ghostscript Recommended PS library Adds PS support to okular kdegraphics libchm Recommended CHM library Adds CHM support to okular kdegraphics djvulibre Recommended DjVu library Adds DjVu support to okular kdegraphics libTIFF Recommended TIFF library Adds TIFF support to okular kdegraphics libjpeg Recommended JPEG library Needed for PalmDB docments in okular kdegraphics CUPS lpr and/or lp Recommended CUPS version of lpr or lp commands Needed for advanced printing of PDF, PS, or DJVU docments in okular kdegraphics FooPackage Recommended Foo description Foo explanation kdemodule, kdemodule, kdemodule Multimedia Package Level Description Explanation Modules ALSA Recommended ALSA (Advanced Linux Sound Architecture) provides audio and MIDI functionality for Linux.
