Standard FC3- KDE Apps supported?


I am not in front of my Fedora Core 3 laptop at the moment, as I am at home downloading some programs, but I was just wondering, even though the standard Fedora Core 3 installation does not include KDE, can it still run KDE applications?

I would like to install K3B on it, but I am not sure if it will work because when I installed FC3 I did the default installation, only including GNOME. Does this mean that K3B and other apps like amaroK won't work?

A swift reply would be appreciated. Thanks in advance,

J_K9

Well you'll need Qt installed (because KDE apps use that as the toolkit for drawing widgets) and probably certain KDE libraries too. I have KDE installed and never use it, but it makes life easier sometimes.

Thanks, but I don't know if FC3 brings the libraries included with GNOME. Can you please tell me where to download them, just in case FC3 doesn't bring them (Qt and the libs). Thanks again,

Qt can be downloaded from www.trolltech.com but you'll need to compile it. I am pretty sure that FC has the libraries you need on there somewhere...use whatever package tool comes with it to install them. If you plan to ever compile things from source then also install the corresponding devel packages.

Thank you Komakino for your reply. So if I install KDE using the package manager (inserting my FC3 DVD) then will I still need to install Qt?

If the answer to the previous question is yes, then where do I download it from, because the only one there is is a 30-day trial version. I also don't know how to compile programs from source.

I do remember that by inserting the FC3 DVD I can choose to install extra packages. So if I installed KDE using the DVD that would be O.K right? Thanks again, and I'm sorry for being such a pain!

If you choose to install KDE then I expect it will also install Qt because KDE needs it. If KDE is on your CD then Qt DEFINITELY will be.
