I am attempting to install KATE onto Fedora 20 using the instructions at http://kate-editor.org/get-it/ . Everything is smooth until step 3 where I get the following error:

[root@localhost kde]# git clone git://anongit.kde.org/kate bash: git: command not found...

Am I copying and pasting the code improperly?

Is there a particular reason you need the very latest build of this from the KDE project? Fedora packagers keep their binary builds of these packages pretty up-to-date, so the official Fedora release may well fulfil your requirements.

You should be able to install Kate with your package manager, or with yum from the command line like this:

yum install kate

which will satisfy any dependencies and install a pretty new version.

Hi

Building Kate from Sources

This quick howto explains how to build Kate without touching your stable KDE installation. Right now, Kate’s source code is located on git.kde.org . To build Kate from git, you need KDE SC >= 4.8. Further, make sure you have the following packages installed: git and the kdelibs development package (and CMake).

And follow all steps to install from that thead

FYI: You are getting is because you do not have git installed.

You can get it with:

$ sudo apt-get install git

Nope. This would work on a Debian based system but not on Fedora. To install git run sudo dnf install git
