qt is NOT kde, kde uses the qt toolkit, bit theres more to kde than that, if you need to run a program written specifically for kde you will also need the kde libs and possibly some other stuff.

It varies, depending on application.

If I were using unity, it would install all the dependencies, libraries for a kde application to work, right?
