    Default How to install ktechlab 0.3.7 on openSUSE 12.1

    hello!

    i was searching on the internet for an open source alternative to Flowcode for PICmicro and found ktechlab. i downloaded the archive from sourceforge, extracted the tape archive, read the install file and couldn't get past step 1. this is the error i get:

    choy-openSUSE:/home/choy/Downloads/ktechlab-0.3.7 # ./configure
    checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
    checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
    checking target system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
    checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
    checking for -p flag to install... yes
    checking whether build environment is sane... yes
    checking for a thread-safe mkdir -p... /bin/mkdir -p
    checking for gawk... gawk
    checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... no
    checking for kde-config... not found
    configure: error: The important program kde-config was not found!
    Please check whether you installed KDE correctly.

    i did a quick search on the internet about the error but couldn't find a solution. i read that kde-config is part of the KDE3 base system (correct me if i'm wrong coz i intend to find out what it really is and what it is for). can you guys walk me through solving this? i really want to install ktechlab so i could use it for my project design next semester. i'd like to suggest to my groupmates to go open source all the way in designing and implementing our project! thanks in advance!

    You are welcome.

    Allways first look in the standard repos (YaST > Softweare > Software management and the Search).
    Then try software.opensuse.org: Download openSUSE 12.1
    Third try to find an openSUSE specific version in the Internet/product website.
    Only last resort is using a tarball and build yourself. You then very much depend on instructions, dependancies and other tricks the developer introduced while creating the tarball (for some it does not seem to be the most enjoyable part of making a good product ).

    And when you decide to go for building yourself, do not forget to install the Developer Package Group from YaST, else you will have no compilers, etc.
