I build using /opt/kf5 -> kf5-5.19.0. It's relatively easy to build all
of lf5/plasma bu removing /opt/kde and, if needed, renaming
/opt/kf5-5.19.0. Of course if the kf5 version is different, then the
renaming is not needed.
When you build, be sure to redirect the output to a log so you can inspect
it. In my build script I use:
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$KF5_PREFIX \
-Wno-dev .. 2>&1 | tee -a $LOG
make -j8 2>&1 | tee -a $LOG
sudo -E make install 2>&1 | tee -a $LOG
Of course $KF5_PREFIX and $LOG have to be defined.
