How To - KDE 4.9.1 Upgrade

Postby RegionX on Tue Sep 11, 2012 5:51 am

I am new to Linux and am not sure how to get the latest version of KDE. I have seen this page as well as this one but short of downloading each file individually (at which point I wouldnt know what to do with the files anyway) I am not sure how to go about it. I am sure there is a quick code I can punch in to Terminal.

Having a lot of bugs so need to do this asap. (Opengl not working for example).

Seriously? Surely most people here would have jumped at the KDE 4.9 upgrade and subsequently snapped up 4.9.1? I tried KDE IRC and it is empty.

assuming you are using mint 13 kde
btw what is the output of
Code: Select all
inxi -Sr
4.9.1. is not yet available in the usual place https://launchpad.net/~kubuntu-ppa/+archive/backports?field.series_filter=precise
if you're not using mint 13 don't use that ppa

linux is case sensitive :)
Code: Select all
inxi -sr
is different from
Code: Select all
inxi -Sr
(note the capital S in the last command)

but back on topic, kubuntu-backports doesn't have 4.9.1 available atm

Okay I guess I will wait then but how is it that others have done the upgrade already (Or maybe they haven't)? More specifically why do we have to wait for kubuntu-backports?

Here is what I was supposed to give you:

Code: Select all
CPU~Dual core Intel Core i3 CPU M 370 (-HT-MCP-) clocked at 933.000 Mhz Kernel~3.2.0-30-generic x86_64 Up~8:48 Mem~816.0/3627.7MB HDD~320.1GB(2.8% used) Procs~163 Client~Shell inxi~1.7.33


Thanks for the advice so far...

PS: Got OpenGL working :D

in ubuntu/mint the latest kde available is (at time of writing) 4.9.0; kubunt-backport is the fastest place to get pre-compiled kde (usually within days), some other more bleeding edge distros offer the latest quicker.

PS: glad you got openGL working :)

So it is now in Kubuntu backports. See here. Unfortunately this is whhat I get:

Code: Select all
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports
[sudo] password for cameron:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/add-apt-repository", line 125, in <module>
    ppa_info = get_ppa_info_from_lp(user, ppa_name)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/softwareproperties/ppa.py", line 80, in get_ppa_info_from_lp
    curl.perform()
pycurl.error: (35, 'gnutls_handshake() failed: A TLS packet with unexpected length was received.')


I would also really like to know how big the update will be to download?

i see that you already added ppa's with add-apt so i'm not exactly sure what is the problem now; the last line of the error is something that i would look in google
pycurl.error: (35, 'gnutls_handshake() failed: A TLS packet with unexpected length was received.')


as for now and adding 4.9.1 you can
Code: Select all
kdesudo kate /etc/apt/sources.list
(will open sources.list as root)
and add the following lines (the actual ppa)
Code: Select all
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/kubuntu-ppa/backports/ubuntu precise main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/kubuntu-ppa/backports/ubuntu precise main

Code: Select all
apt update
Code: Select all
apt dist-upgrade
