KDE on Unix and other platforms
Want to run Konqi from a Windows XP desktop? Want to use KDE's marvellous Quanta Plus Web editor from inside Windows? Not that you particularly like XP -- it's just that you have no choice. Well, with NX now you can. I've compiled some
background info on how to achieve this, including some nice and revealing screenshots:
Apple has released the source to
applications such as Sherlock, and is provided as Open Source as part
UltraSPARC 60 with Sun Solaris and Apple iBook G4 PowerPC with Mac OS X -- these are amongst the diverse hardware and OS platforms on which KDE will be presenting its latest achievements to the world this week in Karlsruhe, Germany. Both installations will be running CUPS, to demonstrate how KDE Print can provide a great environment for an enterprise printing solution across different platforms.
Eva wrote in to inform us that the Solaris packages for KDE 2.2 are finally ready. They are targeted at the Sparc and Ultra Sparc architectures, and work with Solaris 6/2.6, 7/2.7 and 8, and possibly Solaris 2.5 and 2.5.1 as well (Don't blame us for these confusing version numbers).
Yesterday I started putting together
a list of operating
systems/distributions and architectures on which KDE 2.x compiles and runs. It is far from
complete but already lists three BSDs, eight Linuxes and four other
Unices, as well as nine architectures. If you know of a system that is not listed, please help us complete
the list. Instructions for contributing are
