KDE 4.2.4 moved to backports, update required

Postby Boo on Tue Sep 29, 2009 2:19 am

Hi all, I just saw this:
http://www.kubuntu.org/node/110
which basically says KDE 4.2.4 has been moved from the PPA repos to the backports repos, with some extra fixes.
Since Gloria KDE pulled KDE 4.2.4 from the PPA repos you should now comment out the PPA repo and un-comment the backports repo, then update.

e.g. change the lines in /etc/apt/sources.list to:
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ jaunty-backports main restricted universe multiverse
#deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/kubuntu-ppa/backports/ubuntu jaunty main

Note the above 2 lines are not next to each other in the sources.list file.

but be careful with the update, watch what it wants to update.
All looked good for me, and got some good extra updates too.

Boo

Another question :)
I have to change the repository so i can get several new fixes for kde 4.2.4 and they are only in the jaunty-backports repository.What happened if i dont make that change... nothing?

Why did they do that mess with the repository?

there are 2 ways to edit /etc/apt/sources.list.
1. use the "software sources" gui .
2. manually edit the /etc/apt/sources.list with a gui editor or in a terminal:
To use the kate editor open a terminal and type:
kdesudo kate /etc/apt/sources.list

find these 2 lines:

#deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ jaunty-backports main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/kubuntu-ppa/backports/ubuntu jaunty main

and make them look like (swap wich is commented out):

deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ jaunty-backports main restricted universe multiverse
#deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/kubuntu-ppa/backports/ubuntu jaunty main

save and close.
update with mintupdate

Point 2, they are going to clear out the PPA repository of the 4.2.4 KDE debs and there will be no updates for it.
They may put even newer KDE updates in there or they may not, it may be not used at all any more.
If you do not change the repos you will not be able to install any more 4.2.4 KDE apps once they clear the PPA Repo.

Cheers

Well this is interesting. I went into /etc/apt/sources.lst and this is what I see:

I'm not seeing the two lines in the OP right next to each other, but they are there in different parts of the list.

Is everything in order here?
