Installing KDE

Some points to be considered:

1. You must have already installed X11 via:
# cd /usr/ports/x11/xorg
# make install clean

2. If successful, then start X via "startx" and to stop X server: "Ctl+Alt+Backspace"

3. Next install fonts. startx, then:
# cd /usr/ports/x11-fonts/urwfonts
# make install clean

Follow installation notes and set path (while running X) via:
% xset fp+ /usr/local/lib/X11/fonts/URW
% xset fp rehash

3. Install ttmkfdir at:
# cd /usr/ports/X11-fonts/ttmkfdir make install clean

4. # cd /usr/local/lib/X11/fonts/TrueType
# ttmkfdir -o fonts.dir

Now add the TrueType directory to the font path. This is just the same as described above for Type1 fonts, that is, use

% xset fp+ /usr/local/lib/X11/fonts/TrueType
% xset fp rehash

More to come...
