Dear Rkward gurus

I sent this e-mail two weeks ago but unfortunately no answer, I permit 
to send it once again hoping that I could have some help/advices. Thanks 
a lot!!!


I'm trying to compile rkward on Ubuntu 8.04 where KDE4 is (I think) 
installed, following instructions on
 the wiki and the webpage mentionned (planetkde).

I guess (hope actually) it is a simple problem of dependency? I have 
following error:

baia at Didunix:~/rkward/rkward/build$ cmake  
-DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` ../
bash: kde4-config: command not found
CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-2.6/Modules/FindKDE4.cmake:44 (MESSAGE):
  ERROR: Could not find KDE4 kde4-config
Call Stack (most recent call first):
  CMakeLists.txt:8 (FIND_PACKAGE)

CMake Warning (dev) in CMakeLists.txt:
  No cmake_minimum_required command is present.  A line of code such as

    cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 2.6)

  should be added at the top of the file.  The version specified may be 
  if you wish to support older CMake versions for this project.  For more
  information run "cmake --help-policy CMP0000".
This warning is for project developers.  Use -Wno-dev to suppress it.

-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!

Should I have kde4-config? It seems it is not a package, where can I 
have it from? I checked on system specific issues page 
but I'm not sure whether this page is up to date... can you confirm me 
please? Indeed, it says xlibs-dev is required but it seems it is not 
availabe on usual repos.

Or is it another problem than dependency and I don't use the good 

Thanks so much!
