I perfectly understand. :)

That’s why I addressed you. ;)

My experience with DrKonqi is less than luke warm even on Linux, so if it were me I'd not spend hours and hours trying to get it to work on OS X as it works on Linux.

OK, I’ve verified that now with [1]:

	Since plasma-workspace is dependent on various projects like
	e.g. kwin, libkscreen, and kde-runtime marked with (a) in [2],
        i.e. which do have the X11 dependency issue, we now know that
	the framework - as is - cannot be build on OSX ATM.
