    5 KDE also produces a range of applications, system programs, tools and utilities, many of which will run on Mac OS X or Windows, because they are based on the [http://qt-project.org Qt] framework, a set of C++ libraries and tools that is portable to several operating systems and hardware types.

    8 On Mac OS X, Qt uses the OS X (Cocoa) widgets and window style, which means that KDE and Qt applications look and feel like other OS X applications. However, KDE is primarily developed on Linux and UNIX systems. Its use on Mac is still experimental. Many packages will work if you follow the instructions below, but some software from KDE is not designed to work on this platform.
     8On macOS, Qt uses the macOS (Cocoa) widgets and window style, which means that KDE and Qt applications look and feel like other macOS applications. However, KDE is primarily developed on Linux and UNIX systems. Its use on Mac is still experimental. Many packages will work if you follow the instructions below, but some software from KDE is not designed to work on this platform.

In Linux and UNIX, this command is automatically run periodically, but this is not the case on OS X. The recommended way is to use the following command to automate its use, after installation of kdelibs4 by MacPorts:
