Requirements to Install:

Bilbo is based on Qt4 and KDE4 libraries and uses a modified KBlog library (called BilboKBlog).
You need KDELibs, KDEPimLibs and Boost libraries development packages.
It uses SQLite database engine to store data. so you have to install Qt4 driver for it. after release of Qt 4.4 they package it out of Qt-sql package!( In Debian-based systems such as Kubuntu, it’s libqt4-sql-sqlite).
You also need GNU GetText to build and use translations! If you don’t want them just remove “po” dir in source root.
