KDE 4:4.8.5 upgrade wants to uninstall mint software

Postby breusshe on Thu Sep 20, 2012 6:44 pm

Hey, folks;

I'd like to install the updates for KDE 4.8.5 that have come down the channel from Ubuntu, but if I install them, mint-meta-kde and mintwelcome will be uninstalled. Is the dependency list for these packages being updated or how can I get around losing these packages?

Thanks!

Thanks for the response. I actually realized I could look at the repo description on those packages. Don't know why I didn't do that in the first place. When I saw what they were, I realized they were expendable.
