Further KDE5 packages

This section did not provide instructions for all of the available packages in the KDE5 Software Compilation. The included packages were selected based on what most people would want to use on a standard desktop computer.

For a full list of available packages, have a look on the KDE5 servers at http://download.kde.org/stable/applications/16.04.0/src,



Some packages, such as kde-baseapps, kde-runtime, and kmag listed in the link above are only for the older KDE4 and cannot be used with KF5.

Some additional packages worth mentioning are:



Some packages will require additional dependencies. To determine what dependencies are needed, run from the top of the source tree:

cmake -Wno-dev -L .

Most of these packages can be built with the standard KDE5 instructions:

mkdir build &&
cd    build &&

      -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release         \
      -DLIB_INSTALL_DIR=lib              \
      -DBUILD_TESTING=OFF                \
      -Wno-dev .. &&

And as the root user:

make install
