KDevelop - PHP Debug

I would like to run a debugger for PHP. I’ve tried eclipse, but seems much overkill for what I was wanting. I saw listed that KDevelop would support PHP debugger and would like to try it. But have had trouble figuring out how. There is no debug launch for PHP. I came across one site (KDevelop5/Manual/Plugins: PHP Debugging - KDE UserBase Wiki) which said I needed to install these two plugins:

  • kdev-executebrowser
  • kdev-xdebug
    Okay. How?
    I go to the links and not sure what to do. I guessed that maybe download and extract the archive. I then installed cmake. But cmake said I needed ECM. Which I found out means, extra-cmake-modules, and I installed them. Now it’s saying:

[code] You need to install these two plugins:

  • kdev-executebrowser
  • kdev-xdebug
    And when I start looking into KF5I18n, and either I need to set another environ variable which prefix.sh doesn’t include or need to install KDE5 develop frameworks.

I just wanted to try KDevelop with debugging a simple Hello World PHP program, not recompiling my operating system. Is there not some simpler way to do this? Or is attempting to debug PHP programs in KDevelop not a worthwhile endeavor?

Didn’t get the code part pasted right.
