kde2 application in kde3?


I run an application called kacpi for kde2, I got the app from a website on www.linux-on-laptops.com and I am wanting to update my system but I am not sure that kacpi will work on kde3, I have been searching for the application but cannot find anything for kde3 just alot of stuff for mandrake's version of it. is there anything I can do? thanks

install kde3 in a different directory than kde2 is.
then you can have both. i have 4 versions of kde
in my main distribution, and some scripts to move
stuff around so i can use which one i want.

ok I found a version of kacpi to work with kde3, but now I get this error when trying to install it?

checking for X... configure: error: Can't find X includes. Please check your installation and add the correct paths!

what can I do?
