Unable to find plugins, KDevelop won't work properly!

I have compiled KDevelop 3.0.1. It was installed to /usr/local/kde/bin

When I try to run ./kdevelop it says following:

Unable to find plugins, KDevelop won't work properly!
Please make sure that KDevelop is installed in your KDE directory, otherwise you have to add KDevelop's installation path to the environment variable KDEDIRS and run kbuildsycoca. Restart KDevelop afterwards.
Example for BASH users:
export KDEDIRS=/path/to/kdevelop:$KDEDIRS && kbuildsycoca
Then I wrote command:

export KDEDIRS=/usr/local/kde/bin:$KDEDIRS && kbuildsycoca
Anyway... it still doesnt work.

I had the same problem. I *FINALLY* managed to get it working by pointing KDEDIRS to the main kde directory

export KDEDIRS=/usr/local/kde:$KDEDIRS && kbuildsycoca

Basically the same as you except that I left of the trailing /bin part of the path.

I hope this helps.
