KDE 1

The releases of this section are outdated and will not be supported. The relating packages may work, but we encourage you to install a recent KDE release.

1. install regular cygwin distribution 

2. Install xfree86 server and check that is running 

3. download all files in this distribution into a new directory 

4. empty 

5. call the setup.exe and install needed packages (at first no devel and src 
   packages are needed)
   Note: kdemisc contains files which are copied into /home/administrator (.xinitrc 
         and .xserverrc) and may overwrite existing files. 
         If you don't want this, don't install kdemisc. Instead unpack kdemisc 
         by hand with 'tar -xjvf kdemisc-1.1.2-b1.tar.bz2' in another directory 
         and inspect the containing files.
