Looks like they changed it because it says 2 days for me.

About installing it though, not too sure if it will become available for Mint, but Kubuntu will have it available in their repo's once it is ready. The only problem there is you will lose your Mint install I am sure.

Boo or another developer will more than likely reply an let people know.

I would Also like to know...... kde 4.2.4 is just not good enough now that kde 4.3 is due to be released in a few hours..... its much superior. the rc3 was great!
I hope there is a way to upgrade to kde 4.3 in Mint.... if not I guess i'll just install the OpenSuse latest Kde remix for 4.3 when it comes out....

that in in the /etc/apt/sources.list file already, just uncomment it.

So, seeing as Gloria will be my first run with Linux Mint, I want an authentic Linux Mint experience. Does this imply that I should not upgrade via the Ubuntu repo listed above, and wait for it to be released for Gloria? Will I lose any of the customizations?

we dont repackage KDE for our own repos.
but I have been working on a mint-configurations-kde package that applies the minty configs.
so if you want KDE 4.3 there is only the ppa repo mentioned above.

I would not be in a hurry to update to 4.3, there are reports of people having problems with the install. I would at least wait a couple of days before even attempting the upgrade, even then I would try this in Virtualbox first to see how thing hold up.

Edit: This repo needs to be added along with the repo Boo mentioned to meet some of KDE 4.3 dependencies.

Well, i had the same.

For now i won't advice to upgrade to kde 4.3

hmmmmm. i followed the upgrade instructions too, and it didn't upgrade to kde 4.3. Ugh!
this is crapola...... any ideas????
I hope a mint kde 4.3 respin comes out.... cause i can't be bothered recompiling kde... argghhhh.
its a shame.... cause Mint is Awesome.... even the kde version is way better than kubuntu...but you can't upgrade kde as far as i know......
might aswell try the upgrade in kubuntu to see if all goes well..... as much as kubuntu sucks

errrrrrr. I take that Back..... I have succesfully upgraded to kde 4.3


I did the typical kubuntu style upgrade..... it failed before because i forgot to tick the boxes of the new repo's i added..... lol. After ticking them, refreshing, then marking all upgrades.... I am running LinuxMint 7 Kde 4.3!!!!! So far so good... but im still testing it..... i will post back after a few more hours of testing its stability.
cheers!

I'm new to this Linux business... Can anyone tell me on how to upgrade please? I find the old KDE very buggy.

Thanks

ummm.... I take that back AGAIN!
sorry for the mis information.....
It appeared to be working well after i upgraded to kde 4.3, but then when I rebooted, the desktop failed to load from there on....... it really messed it up..... dunnoy why.... arghhhhh. this is unicorns.....
if you want kde 4.3 you may aswell use the opensuse 11.1 kde 4.3 live cd remix, or install kubuntu with the upgrade..... it doesn't work in Linux mint just yet..... Im hoping for a kde 4.3 remix soon..... that would be great.... and it would be good for the kde edition of linux mint to stay up to date with the latest kde release..... thats one thing i like about opensuse... as soon as a new kde version comes out.... theres a respin that comes out straight away! Ahwell.... until that happens..... back to OpenSuse..... Although Mint always has a place on my harddrive.... just not kde... because its not possible to keep up to date..... :( Maybe we need some more Mint kde contributors? i would be glad to help out..... but my skills are limited Until i learn more about packaging etc..... ahwell :(

Hi,
I tried to install KDE 4.3 from the PPA repository but ended up completely wiping out the KDE from my Mint installation. Now after a long struggle I managed to get the KDE 4.2.4 installed once again. But I do not know whether I have all the mint specific setting or not. I see "Kubuntu-kde" logo in the Kicker menu. Is there any way by which I can install the mint specific configuration.
