How to obtain KTurtle
If you want to use KTurtle it is best to use the packages that come with your distribution (this assumes you're running some sort of free operating system, for instance Linux). Most distributions ship KTurtle, some as a separate package, some as part of the kde-edu package (a package containing all KDE's educational projects).
If you are running Microsoft Windows or MacOSX you consider:
- installing a Linux distribution or running a so called liveCD, or
- waiting for a while, since the next version of KDE (KDE 4) will most likely run on Microsoft Windows and MacOSX as well.
If you are interested in building the latest KTurtle (for those who don't know: KDE4 is not released yet, it is indevelopment, it takes some time/experience with builing code/courage to build), it is not that difficult, there is a nice tutorial here:
In the end of the tutorial you'll find that the writer is building "kanagram", instead of kanagram you'll be building "kturtle" ofcourse (and you dont need to build "libkdeedu") after all changes this last code block will be:
cd svn co -N $REPOSITORY/trunk/KDE/kdeedu cd kdeedu svn up cmake svn up kturtle ls -d */ | sed 's|\(.\+\)/|/\1/s/^#NOTCHECKEDOUT //|' | \ sed -e'/^add_subdirectory/s/^/#NOTCHECKEDOUT /' \ -f- -i CMakeLists.txt mkdir build cd build cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$KDEDIR .. make -k make install
