Steps in the KDE development direction

I embarked on a simple investigation today:  get kdevelop setup on one of my machines so I could start learning how to develop under KDE.  The first lesson was to get my environment right (Kubuntu 64-bit 10.04):

525  export KDEDIR=/usr
527  export KDEDIRS=/usr
535  export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/kde4:/usr/lib/qt4:$LD_LIBRARY_LIB
537  export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/kde4:/usr/lib/qt4:/usr/include/KDE:$LD_LIBRARY_LIB
539  export KDE4_INCLUDES=/usr/include/KDE

Then came the actual coding which, once the above was done, was quite easy.  I followed the tutorial here and modified it slightly to add a custom “No” button.  Simple small step, but progress nonetheless!
