Installing KDE Software Compilation is not enough to get it run out of the box. A few more steps are required, and we'll try to list them here. If you feel something's missing, contact us with some ideas.

X Window System

To use KDE Software Compilation on FreeBSD, X.Org is required. If you still dont't have it, you'll need to install and configure it properly.

Starting KDE Plasma Desktop

After installing KDE workspace (x11/kde4-workspace) either via ports or packages, you can add kdm4_enable="YES" to /etc/rc.conf to boot into KDE Plasma Desktop via KDM, the KDE Display Manager. To get full functionalities, you'll also need to mount procfs.
