I'm relatively new to macports... trying to install the latex editor "kile".

I found an howto here (sorry, in german only):

What I basically did is the following:

sudo port selfupdate && sudo port sync
sudo port install kdelibs4 kdebase4-runtime
sudo chown -R $USER ~/Library/Preferences/KDE
launchctl load -F /Library/LaunchAgents/org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist

after the last command nothing visible happened. Is this normal?

open /Applications/MacPorts/KDE4/

some icon appears jumping and disappears again. Nothing more.

svn co svn://
cd kile
cmake -DQT_QMAKE_EXECUTABLE=/opt/local/bin/qmake-mac
sudo make install
cd  /opt/local/bin/
sudo mv kile kile-bin

sudo nano kile
with this content:

cd /opt/local/bin
sudo mv /Applications/

When I now click on the kile-icon, it appears jumping and disappears
again. Nothing more is happening...

I hope that somebody can help me!

Thank you
