On this page we describe the development progress of Kile 2.1, which will be based on KDE4.
A general overview of some components is given in the table below.
|Code Completion||Completely Rewritten||Requires lots of testing. Please report any change in behaviour from Kile 2.0 to the developers.|
|LaTeX-related Build System||Code ported from Kile 2.0||Requires lots of testing.|
Compiling Kile for KDE4 on Linux/BSD
Currently, KDE libraries 4.2 are required to build Kile. KDE libraries 4.4 are recommended to enable additional functionality in Kile. Additionally, your system needs to be able to compile KDE4 programs; more details can be found here.
It is recommended to create a special directory which will contain the Kile executable and related files. In that way it is easier to upgrade Kile. We assume in the following that the directory $HOME/kile-install is used for that purpose. If you do not want to use a separate directory, you can also install Kile into the local KDE directory for your user, which is named $HOME/.kde usually.
First of all, we create a new directory and download the source code: $ cd $ mkdir kile-build $ cd kile-build $ svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/extragear/office/kile We then create a build directory and configure the build system: $ mkdir build $ cd build $ cmake ../kile -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$HOME/kile-install -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE="Debug" We can now build Kile and install it into $HOME/kile-install $ make -j 2 $ make install -j 2 Finally, we start Kile with: $ KDEDIRS=$HOME/kile-install:$KDEDIRS $HOME/kile-install/bin/kile
