    Building KDevelop from Sources

    If you want to have the latest features and bugfixes, you can build KDevelop yourself from the sources.

    There exists a more in-detail article here.

    Be aware that you could build an unstable version. To help the developers fix bugs, please keep the RelWithDebInfo and report bugs to http://bugs.kde.org, either per hand or using Dr. Konqi.

    Requirements

    Install for all users

    mkdir kdevgit
    cd kdevgit
    git clone git://anongit.kde.org/kdevplatform
    git clone git://anongit.kde.org/kdevelop
    cd kdevplatform
    mkdir build
    cd build
    cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RelWithDebInfo ..
    make && sudo make install
    kbuildsycoca4
    cd ../..
    cd kdevelop
    mkdir build
    cd build
    cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RelWithDebInfo ..
    make && sudo make install
    kbuildsycoca4

    Install for local user

    mkdir kdevgit
    cd kdevgit
    git clone git://anongit.kde.org/kdevplatform
    git clone git://anongit.kde.org/kdevelop
    cd kdevplatform
    mkdir build
    cd build
    cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RelWithDebInfo -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$HOME/kdevelop4 ..
    make && make install
    # the following line is needed so that kbuildsycoca4 finds all .desktop files
    export KDEDIRS=$HOME/kdevelop4:/usr
    kbuildsycoca4
    cd ../..
    cd kdevelop
    mkdir build
    cd build
    cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RelWithDebInfo -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$HOME/kdevelop4 ..
    make && make install
    kbuildsycoca4

    Please note: Whenever you do some package or distribution update that calls kbuildsycoca4, you need to execute the following lines after the update:

    export KDEDIRS=$HOME/kdevelop4:/usr
    kbuildsycoca4
