Both KCast and Trout make use of Perl, so you must have
that installed on your system. I recommend using at least version 5.6.
To compile KCast, you will need version 3.0 of the KDE
Libraries and the development files for the KDE libraries, visit www.kde.org
for information on obtaining them. You will also need Qt 3.0.3 or later
and the associated development files. Visit the Troll
Tech site for details of how to obtain Qt.
All the downloads can be found at the Sourceforge
Click the link below to download the KCast source distribution, or the KCast
i386 .deb package. Note that KCast now uses KDE 3 which means that to use the .deb you will probably
need to download the experimental KDE3 .debs from
Click the link below to download Trout.
You can obtain the latest development version
of Trout / KCast from CVS hosted at sourceforge. Instructions for doing
this are at the Sourceforge
CVS page. The module names you need to use for checking out are "kcast"
if you want the full KCast GUI or "trout" if you are only interested in
the Trout server. Note that when you download KCast it has the Trout server
packed with it, but it will not necessarily be as up to date as the Trout
server available by checking out Trout seperately.
