Installing KDE in FreeBSD and starting KDE

To build KDE from source, use the ports tree:

  # cd /usr/ports/x11/kde3
  # make install clean

X server must be told to launch this application instead of the default window manager.

  #echo "exec /usr/locla/bin/startkde" > ~/.xinitrc


Installing KDE from package.

  # pkg_add -r kde
