It sounds as though you installed KDE and perhaps even QT from RPM or DEBS or some type of package format. When using
KDevelop, i'd recommend that you install both KDE and QT from a source package, compile it, and install it yourself. This will
result in both better preformance, and it will make them work with more programs, such as KDevelop.
