I want to compile the Oxygen-transparent project which requires KDE4. I've tried building and installing the KDELibs 4 Support package , but still there's no kde4-config in my system.

Here's the output of running CMake in the Oxygen-transparent repo :

CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-3.10/Modules/FindKDE4.cmake:60 (message):
  ERROR: Could not find KDE4 kde4-config

Where can I find that file ? Is it possible at all to install such an old program in newer KDEs ?

By the way I use KDE Neon dev edition 5.19.

Thanks in advance.

    Why do you want to install a theme that's only compatible with KDE 4 on a system running KDE 5 in the first place? – Wieland Jun 7 '20 at 22:07

    @Wieland I hope I can do it with KDE4 legacy support in KDE 5. But not sure if that would work with KWin. I just wanna try. And because the project isn't maintained anymore , I have to either use kubuntu trusty or just build it in bionic. – Parsa Mousavi Jun 7 '20 at 22:14

The kde4-config is no longer available on the ubuntu packages website though you can download it from this Direct Download Link or from this Ubuntu manuals link.

You can also find some other kde-config files From the ubuntu packages link

I hope this helps.
