Port notes

Don't forget that dbus needs to be started as the local user (not with sudo) before any KDE programs will launch.
To start it run the following command:
launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchAgents/org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist An agent must be started to maintain KDE's desktop file system configuration cache.
To start it run the following command:
launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchAgents/org.macports.kdecache.plist


Users who experience graphics glitches (like flickering) in KDE4 application on newer OS versions
are invited to use the qtconfig application (in /Applications/MacPorts/Qt4) and experiment with
the Native graphics system as described in the qt4-mac notes.
