As for kded4 (as well as dbus), I use a hacked-up version of kdelibs on
Windows and now also on OSX to avoid running any daemons. It disables a
number of features, kioslaves are pretty broken for instance, but on the
other hand, it saves a lot of support. When I still had dbus and kded
running I would get lots of questions about these scary daemons.
This is the repo I use:
It also removes a host of other things I don't need for krita, so it
isn't immediately reusable. For instance, no plasma, no kparts, ssl is
But I'm really close to fixing up a dmg of krita, I think, I basically
only have to hack macdeployqt to also deploy kde plugins and their
libraries. This is based on building all the dependencies with a set of
external cmake projects, I'm not using macports or homebrew or fink here.
