Setting up SDL in KDevelop

Last Updated 6/14/11
1)Start up KDevelop and start a new project.

2)Set your new project to be a SDL project.

3)Now that KDevelop set everything up and gave you a sample source code it's time to build your project. If there's no errors, you're finished. Otherwise go back and make sure you didn't skip a step.
The RPM also installed the SDL documentation on your computer.

It should be at usr/doc/SDL-devel-1.2.9/index.html,
usr/doc/SDL-devel-1.2.10/index.html if you're using SDL 1.2.10,
usr/doc/SDL-devel-1.2.11/index.html if you're using SDL 1.2.11, etc, etc.

Under some linux distributions, it will be located at:

Bookmark it and keep it handy for reference.
