KDE applications available for Haiku!

Thanks to Qt port for Haiku it has become possible to port many KDE applications including KOffice! It has been ported: kchmviewer, kdeaccessibility, kdeadmin, kdebase, kdeedu, kdegames, kdegraphics, kdelibs, kdelibs-experimental, kdemultimedia, kdenetwork, kdepim, kdepimlibs, kdepim-runtime, kdesdk, kdetoys, kdeutils, kdevplatform, kdewebdev, kdiff3, koffice and many others packages. In all there are about 150 application ready to run. Some applications do not run fully stable, but most of them can be used in everyday work.

To install these applications, first install "TiltOS for Haiku". Remember that you need Haiku with gcc4 support (gcc4 or gcc2hybrid builds) and a lot of free space in the boot partition (nightly images from haiku-files.org are insufficient).
Then from the Terminal use the 'box' tool for packages installation. Here is an example of how to install kdegames.

# download index
$ box --sync-repos

# install basic packages for KDE
$ box -i dbus
$ box -i desktop-file-utils
$ box -i shared-mime-info
$ box -i oxygen-icons

# install kdegames
$ box -i kdegames --no-deps

After installing an application you can run it. First, we start from the Terminal dbus session.

$ eval `dbus-launch --auto-syntax`
# and finally run klines game
$ klines

Have fun and do not forget to make a donation.

Thank you for those cool ports and packaging! I could even make kword and others run from the haiku alpha installation.
