Help installing KDE Connect on Mac

Hello everyone,

I am trying to install KDE Connect on my Mac. I tried to install multiple versions: kdeconnect-kde_Release_macos [Jenkins] and kdeconnect-kde_Nightly_macos [Jenkins]

But when opening them, I get a “Cannot connect to DBus
KDE Connect will quit” error message.

Does anyone know why it’s happening and how to fix the issue?

Following your thread.

I’m experiencing the same issue. I’ve tried both the latest stable release and nightly versions. macOS 13.4.

I seemed to have fixed the issue.

What I first did was install MacPorts

Then I installed dbus via MacPorts

^ Don’t forget to put in another command that the notes say you have to put in

After doing all that, try to open kdeconnect again.
