    Unhappy C++ IDE for KDE


    Hi,
    I am new to debian and linux in general. I've been looking at various C++ IDE tools that work with KDE. I came across kdevelop and downloaded the package from http://packages.debian.org/unstable/kde/kdevelop3

    I tried installing the package using the alien -i <packagename> command but came with the following errors:

    :/home/admin/Desktop# alien -i kdevelop.deb dpkg: dependency problems
    prevent configuration of kdevelop3:
    kdevelop3 depends on kdelibs4c2a (>= 4:3.5.1-3); however:
    Package kdelibs4c2a is not installed.
    kdevelop3 depends on libc6 (>= 2.3.5-1); however:
    Version of libc6 on system is 2.3.2.ds1-22.
    kdevelop3 depends on libdb4.3 (>= 4.3.28-1); however:
    Version of libdb4.3 on system is 4.3.27-2.
    kdevelop3 depends on libgcc1 (>= 1:4.0.2); however:
    Version of libgcc1 on system is 1:3.4.3-13.
    kdevelop3 depends on libidn11 (>= 0.5.1; however:
    Version of libidn11 on system is 0.5.13-1.0.
    kdevelop3 depends on libqt3-mt (>= 3:3.3.5); however:
    Package libqt3-mt is not installed.
    kdevelop3 depends on libstdc++6 (>= 4.0.2-4); however:
    Package libstdc++6 is not installed.
    kdevelop3 depends on libxinerama1; however:
    Package libxinerama1 is not installed.
    kdevelop3 depends on libxrender1 (>= 1:0.9.0.2); however:
    Version of libxrender1 on system is 0.8.3-7.
    kdevelop3 depends on kdevelop3-data (>> 3.0); however:
    Package kdevelop3-data is not installed.
    kdevelop3 depends on kdevelop3-plugins (= 4:3.3.1-1); however:
    Package kdevelop3-plugins is not installed.
    dpkg: error processing kdevelop3 (--install):
    dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
    Errors were encountered while processing:
    kdevelop3

    so I tried to install the first missing package but that package was missing other packages as well. Is there any other way to get EVERYTHING package installed at once or do I have to go through each and every one of the missing packages listed above until all are installed. Also are there any other good c++ IDE tools for kde?

    thanks in advance

    Use apt to install programs; it will install them and all of the dependencies. This will save you many headaches trying to chase down dependencies. To install kdevelop, type (as root):
    Code:
    apt-get install kdevelop3
    Enjoy.

    1) "It doesn't work..." is simply not useful information.
    2) Don't cross post!
    3) If you are asking for help, start by telling us your distro/os and version.

    It has been HELL

    so I looked at the requirements for running kdevelop and noticed that some of the tools that I have are not uptodate. so I downloaded them. for each package I ran the command alien -i <package_name>. but to my surprise when I tried to run the command, it would still show the old version.

    Is there a way to upgrade using alien rather than install? is there any other command besides alien that I should use? most of the extentions on the files are tar.gz.

    You really should look into using apt for installing programs: http://os.newsforge.com/os/04/12/02/1710208.shtml

    This will greatly solve your problem of having to try and install programs using alien and dpkg.
