It depends considerably on your local set-up, and your platform because of wxW . I have these defines configured:


and the following custom include paths:


(all copied directly from my audacity/.kdev4/audacity.kdev4 settings file).

You can set these via the project settings dialog in KDevelop.

I'm guessing that you could get the wx-related defines and paths from wx-config, so if KDevelop supported (supports?) shell expressions in its settings files you could (almost) write a template .kdev4 file. Almost, because typically you have to know which wx-config script to use...
