  • No Spam, and please link to the source instead of blogs that link to the source. Blogs are fine as long as they have original content or add significant content to news or issue.
  • This is a community subreddit so be respectful of other users.
  • Post comparing various desktop environments and/or distros are not authorized on r/kde. This subreddit is about the KDE community and not about stupid flamewars between open source projects.
  • No screenshot of your desktop, use the Weekly Screenshot Thread instead

Want to contribute to KDE?

For starters:

  • The best way to start contributing is to contact the community over Matrix, Telegram, IRC

  • At first sight, it might seem a bit hard to interact in those groups. That's okay! Join them first, see how things are done, mention your interest and where you'd like to work with. We may even find a mentor for you!

  • The KDE Community develops and distributes open source software. As such, we follow a sort of do-ocracy wherein tasks are done and assigned by contributors themselves. Feel free to pick an area and just start contributing immediately! We're always here to help you along the way. A good way to contribute with code for the first time is to fix an unfixed bug that afflicts you or assign yourself to junior jobs and start working on them.

  • It's always nice to collaborate optimally with others in any given setting, but this is especially important for community projects like those following the open source model, so remember to read the KDE Code of Conduct.
