Kexi is an integrated environment for managing data. Kexi project helps in creating database schemas, inserting, querying and processing data.

As Kexi is a real member of the KDE and KOffice projects, it integrates fluently into both. It is designed to be fully usable also without KDE on Linux/Unix and MS Windows platforms (Mac OS X version planned).

Kexi is also considered as long awaited MS Access replacement.

Kexi requires KDE libraries (kdelibs) of version 3.2 or newer, and development packages for this libraries (often names kdelibs-devel or kdelibs-dev, depending on your Linux distribution).


Go to command line and type:

./configure --prefix=`kde-config --prefix` --enable-debug=full
su -c "make install"

Notes for configure stage:

* Special case: if you have downloaded (or checked out from CVS) entire KOffice source code (i.e. all koffice/ subdirectories) but want to only compile Kexi, not KWord, KSpread, etc., please create inst-apps in koffice/ directory. The file should contain names of directories you want to configure and compile (separated by spaces). For example, if you want to only compile Kexi, put (before running configure):


Otherwise, you may want to compile KWord and some other directories, eg. putting:

filters lib kword kexi

* type ./configure --help to see configure options. You may want to add --with-.... to enable some other options.
* --enable-debug=full option is not required but highly recommended, because you can get more verbose error reports (backtraces) in canse of problems/crashes and send these to Kexi authors.
