You need to install the libqtjava.so and libkdejava.so libraries, and the
qtjava.jar and koala.jar files (that's done by the 'make install' command in
kdebindings/qtjava and kdejava). Then make sure the two jar files are on your
CLASSPATH, and that you've run 'ldconfig' after installing the libs.

No there isn't much documentation I'm afraid. Look in the qtjava/README and
kdejava/README files. Build the javadoc documentation (it needs lots of
memory to run), and then go and look at the example programs and try them out
is probably the best way to start. See kdejava/koala/examples/kscribble for
an example KDE app to use as a possible starting point.
People have reported problems with hotspot on 1.3 and 1.4 jvms, so you may
need to turn off hotspot if you have unexpected crashes.
