Hi,

To install KDEVELOP you need this packages :

 
KDE     Website = www.kde.org 
Qt 3.2.3 Website = www.trolltech.com/products/qt 
g++  2.95.3 Website = gcc.gnu.org
GNU make Website = www.gnu.org/software/make 
perl  5.004 Website = www.perl.com 
autoconf2.52 Website = www.gnu.org/software/autoconf 
automake  1.6 Website = www.gnu.org/software/automake 
flex  2.5.4 Website = www.gnu.org/software/flex 
libtool  1.4 Website = www.gnu.org/software/libtool/libtool.html 
Berkley DB  3.0 and  4.1  Website =www.sleepycat.com

If you (have) install(ed) these KDEDEVELOP will install also without any problems

Gr.

right,
when i go to www.kde.org , i clicked on KDE 3.5.5 released., then under heading" Installing KDE 3.5.5 Binary Packages", i click on http://download.kde.org,  i selected ftp://ftp.ussg.iu.edu, went to the src directory and downloaded kdebase-3.5.5.tar.bz2.


is this correct ?

this is my first time trying to install anything on a unix environment, so excuse me, but i need detailed instructions.

thanks in advance

No you better not download the source file.  This file has to be compilated first. You better select

ftp://ftp.archlinux.org/extra/os/i686 en than choose kdevelop-3.3.5-1.pkg.tar.gz. Download this and then run ./configure en then make and make install. watch closely at the error warnings if you get them.

so once kdevelop-3.3.5-1.pkg.tar.gz is downloaded, i go to my command prompt and go to the directory it's saved on, and type in
./configure
make
make install

just like that and this should install this package ?

yes that is right.

Remember to install all the sub applications like qt etc. if you didn't install them already.

you first have to unpack the package you have downloaded. it can be done with file roller . or the command tar -xvf "packagename"

check if there is an configure filename in the directory that is created by unpacking the application

once i unzipped it, and used tar
i checked but that tar file never created a folder called kdevelop...
the directory where the tar file is located only has that file, no folder, anywhere


and i don't see any filename configure

i have a folder called kdevelop_downloads
inside here contains the kdevelop-3.3.5-1.pkg.tar you mentioned inthe beginning

i unzip it, use gzip and tar
but no new folder got created.

i open up file : kdevelop_downloads and the tar file is still there and only that.

i'm using gnome.

i just realized, this package did creat a folder called opt
there are many directories inside it, so i'm going to search to find where it installed that configure file

and from there i'll do those steps
./configure
make
make install

correct?

i should be if you unpack the file... strange. i have tries it and it works... Maybe it would be handy to download suse linux and choose kdedevelop as an application. It will be automaticly installed.

i found folder config , therefore opt/kde/share/config
contains
kdeveloprc
kdevassistantrc

does this make a differnce?

what is the distribution that u are using?  most support yum / apt-get

find the rpm package on net using google and do a simple rpm -ivh OR

yum install kdeveloper

should get you all dependency automatically installed and running.

sorry it should be

yum install kdevelop

or download the RPm and from ftp://rpmfind.net/linux/sourceforge/k/kd/kde-redhat/kdevelop-2.1.5-2.0.0.i386.rpm

or choose the best depending on your KDE version.

i'm not able to access the link you posted, ygoutham.

i've given up with kdevelop.
my desktop is GNOME so i figured i'd use anjuta.
i was able to unzip but it won't properly configure .
i get the following messages at the end of the ./configure process.

"
checking pkg-config is at least version 0.90.... no
checking for GLIB...configure: error: The pkg-config script could not be found or is too old. Make sure it is in your PATH or set the PKG_CONFIG environment to the full path to pkg-config.

Alternately, you may set the environment variables GLIB_CFLAGS and GLIBS_LIBS to
avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

To get pkg-config, see <http://www.freedesktop.org/software/pkgconfig>.
See 'config.log' for more details."
