I have created a short guide on how to install KDE1 here:

sandsmark commented on 2020-09-28 07:59 (UTC) requires http(s) now, and I've fixed kde1 so it is possible to install to /usr, so I suggest applying this patch to the PKGBUILD:

I compiled it as per the guide on github (installing qt1, kde1-kdelibs, kde1-kdebase, etc) but it doesn't work right (none of the programs launch except for display settings) I looked further into it and apparently KFM is segfaulting on startup, and since the whole DE apparently relies on KFM, that makes it useless. does anyone have any idea on how to fix this? I really want KDE1 on my system,

@sl1pkn07 You'd have to port the modules first, these modules don't have a cmake build system yet.

sl1pkn07 commented on 2020-03-14 09:49 (UTC)


any plans for build the rest of the kde1 modules? kdegraphics, kdemultimedia, etc)?

KDE 1 Desktop starts, but no program starts (Virtualbox).

@Chazza: Sorry for the late response, but I just fixed the problem in 1.1.2-5.

@z3ntu I tried rebuilding qt1 and kde1-kdebase but the latter build failed with the same error as before. Only by disabling compilation of kikbd can I get kde1-kdebase to build successfully. It's really weird though. Doing pacman -Ql qt1 shows that the .moc files are provided. I can verify that they're all in /opt/qt1 with find. So something odd is happening here. I haven't got time to look into this myself properly but I thought I'd put this up in case anyone else has the same problem. For reference, here is the build error:

@Chazza: Can you try rebuilding qt1 and then rebuilding kde1-kdebase without the patch? That way it worked for me. Will try the rest in a few days in a vm probably.
