I'd like to use kde4 on my Leopard. I tried http://mac.kde.org/?id=build,
but ended up with some unusuable KDE Apps. :-(

I first tried "sudo port install kdebase4", then "sudo port install
kdebase4-devel". (deactivated all old packages). I get the same errors:

konqueror shows his welcome page, but without the css style sheet and
without images. I Type "/" => error message "Could not start process Cannot
talk to klauncher: Not connected to D-BUS server." (in a message box)

Started from "Terminal.app" with

konqueror(49947): Couldn't start knotify from knotify4.desktop:  "KLauncher
could not be reached via D-Bus. Error when calling
Not connected to D-BUS server

... and some other d-bus messages. So, how can i fix dbus?? I've read on
some webpages, that problem with dbus on mac are solved...?
