I'd like to start doing bug fixes etc. for the KDE project and was wondering what development environment I should use.

Though I'm not sure, you may take a look at this and this pages... – Kushal Jun 8 '11 at 11:09

KDevelop is a good choice. You can also have a look at Qt Creator. If you want something lighter, have a look at Kate.

There is no mandatory development environment though: many KDE developers also use Vim, Emacs or XEmacs for example.

This is a good question, and I'm sure the KDE community would love to have help. I'd suggest looking on the website. bertmanphx

KDevelop is a quality IDE, with built-in support for KDE/Qt projects.
