Common Mistakes
IMPORTANT: most applications need TDEDIR as the directory where KDE is
installed. Please set this in your login file.

If XPM support wasn't configured, it may be that configure has no idea where
your XPM libraries are. If so, set XPM_INCLUDE and XPM_LDFLAGS to the paths
where configure should look for XPM. But if you haven't installed XPM or it
didn't come with your system, that's no problem. You will only miss a few
screensavers. The same thing applies with OPENGL support. Here you have to

If configure claims Qt cannot be found, have a look at and download the latest Qt 3.3.x release.

Be advised, if you're using FreeBSD, then please do not use the Qt port that
comes along with it.

tdebase's configure script supports all the standard GNU autoconf options
(you can have the various options listed for you by specifying the --help
switch), plus the following options are also supported. Note: the *non*
default variation is listed, so if you see --enable-debug, the default is
--disable debug.

use X include files in DIR

use X library files in DIR

creates debugging code [default=no]

Add strict[er] compiler options (may not work!) to the CFLAGS and
CXXFLAGS. This is GNU CC specific for the time being.

assume the C compiler uses GNU ld [default=no]

force libtool not to do file locking

do not use Native Language Support (i18n)

where the root of qt is installed

look for the Qt header files in DIR

look for the Qt library in DIR

look for include files in DIR in addition to any other
`standard' paths

look for [extra] libraries in DIR too

don't try to make sure that tdebase is installed into the same
base KDE directory as the rest of KDE

the root to install to [default=/] (i.e. make / == DIR, so /usr
becomes DIR/usr)

do not use the rpath feature of ld

use xdm (and config files) from DIR if the xdm config dir can't be
found automaticly

enable support for PAM: ARG=[yes|no|service name]

if you want to check for and use shadow password support if it's present

disable any software which depends on OpenGL

disable color pixmap XPM tests

enable Xinerama support

Please check ./configure --help for a more current list of options and what
they do.

You can use --enable-debug with the configure script, if you want to have
debug code in your KDE apps and libs. If you experience problems and want to
report problems to the KDE Bugs database, it is recommended to recompile
with this switch enabled to make the backtraces more verbose (and thus
giving the developer more information about the cause of the bug).

You can use 'make uninstall' if you want to remove the kde from the dirs.
This feature has not been tested completely, and is depreciated. On a system
where TDEDIR is specific to KDE (i.e. not /usr), rm -rf $TDEDIR does it as

More Info
If your system does not have XPM installed, and you cannot locate a package
of it, you may obtain it from, or you may find
it in

If you are running a FreeBSD system, you will need to make sure that LIBS is
set to "-Wl,-export-dynamic". The easiest way to do this is to prefix
configure with it, i.e.: LIBS="-Wl,-export-dynamic" ./configure. Thanks to
Will Andrews <> and Arun Sharma <>
for identifying what needed to be done, and how to do it, and such.

If your system supports PAM (Plugable Authentication Modules), please see
the README.pam file in this directory for more information about using KDE
with PAM.

Have a look at the individual subdirectories, if you would like to find out
more about a specific application included in tdebase.
