installing KDE 3.3.1 with konstruct


I finally downloaded everything, but I did it all as root not 'devon' my normal user account. How do I get it installed into my 'devon' account? I tried copying the 'kde3.3.1' folder to my home directory but when I tried make in '/usr/local/src/konstruct/meta/kde' as 'devon' it said:

Maybe you should have looked over the Makefile and adjusted yoour personal preferences accordingly.

Then your in for a treat. Just go to the top directory of konstruct and see if there's a Makefile there. Usually that one provides global parameters. Open it up in an text editor and most of the rest should seem pretty self-explantory. Don't poke around with any options your not familiar with or it could break your whole build. You might need to adjust the permissions of the folders recursively with chown/chmod to appropriate values before devon is able to use them.

You should have never touched the files as root. Konstruct is able to build, install, and use KDE as a regular user generally with no superuser interaction required.

Yeah, exacly.
You need to change the owner is what it seems like.
I have never used konstruct, and install KDE using the method defined in the BLFS book.
Try issuing this command as root from /usr/local/src/konstruct:

chown -R devon:devon ./*

ok it seems to be working now i just changed ($HOME) to /home/devon/ thanks.
KDE is great, its too bad they don't have a great download/install utility
