Building KDevelop from Sources

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

There is a more detailed article here which uses the kdesrc-build system that builds up-to-date KDE dependencies and then KDevelop. The article also details a configuration change to prevent building all of the KDE dependencies when using kdesrc-build.

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 by 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
