but if it does stuff up, you can remove it and go back to what you had.......
open up a konsole
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
scroll down to the bottom and copy and paste
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/kubuntu-ppa/backports/ubuntu jaunty main
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/kubuntu-ppa/staging/ubuntu jaunty main
press ctrl and x and choose Y to save all changes
then type in konsole
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 8AC93F7A
then type in
sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude dist-upgrade
it will refresh and install the upgrades.... accept any changes. Let it do its thing.
Let me know how you go
I won't get a chance to try this in Linux mint until tonight....
but it works perfect in Kubuntu, so i don't see why it won't now work in Mint.
Backup all your data just incase.... and only try this upgrade if your not too worried if you bork it! lol.... but it should run smooth now.

I am still using Mint KDE 6 because of graphic driver problems in Gloria (xorg only supports the ati driver that dropped support for my card). I was wondering if there was a way to install KDE 4.3 on Felicia. I'm not sure using launchpad would still work for it.
If not, that's ok, I looked at Mint KDE 7 and it's great, and probably better with 4.3. I'll just have a smaller display

Fresh install, enabled backports repo, did a "sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude dist-upgrade". No luck.
