Fri Apr 20, 2012 7:44 am
Maybe I missed the information somehow but how do I get to run Calligra on my Mac?

None of the Calligra developers actually has a Mac, so we cannot port Calligra to OS X or create packages. There have been volunteers who have successfully ported some parts of Calligra, like Krita, to OSX, but they haven't published packages.

I am trying to compile Calligra in Mac OS X - Lion.

The link below has the framework and library in order for Calligra to work in Mac OS X.

It is still figuring how to do this.

Homebrew has problem working with sycoca system in KDE, so the practical solution is to install calligra through macports, and generate a calligra installer containning all the dependencies. I'll look into how to develop a calligra portfile.

I am trying to compile Krita on OSX, I will post a link to the bin's on the forum when I'm done.
I'm using macports, got most of the dependencies sorted kdebase4 keeps throwing the error 'obsolete port'.

I just was wondering if anyone had information on how to install Calligra to OS X. If so, would they be willing to share a step-by-step documentation on what worked? Frankly, I have no idea where to even start with this installation.

I know that one of our developers is trying to, and have something running, I hope he is able to share his findings in the not too distant future

Here is a installer package I made several days ago. Try it and report problems, it's likely there are some environment variable not set correctly.

I made more ui enhancements after this version, I'll produce another package when rc2 is out, and push portfile to macports.

Hi Phil,

Thanks for working on this - I'm two days trying to parse through how to get Calligra installed on a Mac, OSX 10.8. I ran your package, and it seemed to install completely.

However - I wasn't then sure where to find the executables. Also, do I need to have X11 (XQuartz maybe) running? Also, I may have muddied the waters in my efforts to do a build - with MacPorts and Fink both installed. Haven't been able to do a build install - likely lack of experience on my part.

Anyway, I looked in the MacPorts Application folder, and found a Calligra executable. I double click, and it tries to load, and then loads something called - drkonqi - which then crashes.

It may be that I need to clear out all my other efforts, as to directories, and try fresh? Am operating on OSX 10.8.2

Thanks in advance,

Dean

It should not be necessary to start X11/Quartz as KDE applications use Qt - which allows them to function as native Mac OS X applications for the most part.

In terms of the executables to look for, try "calligrawords" and "krita" as several examples. They will probably be at $install_prefix/bin/

I tried it. It doesn't run for me, it appears that drkonqi is not starting. When I try to run /opt/calligra/lib/kde4/libexec/drkonqi.app/Contents/MacOS/drkonqi directly, I get:
2013-01-06 22:07:57.286 drkonqi[49442:303] The application with bundle ID is running setugid(), which is not allowed.

P.S I really hope you can give me uninstall instructions. If I can't install something as an app bundle, I really like to go through MacPorts, just to keep the FS clean. .pkgs make me nervous.

P.P.S. Thanks for working on this- I'm quite keen to keep testing it.
