KDE 12 4.7.4 upgrade

Postby phoenix40uk on Fri Dec 14, 2012 1:44 pm

HI All:

I have Mint KDE12 32 bit installed and am looking to update KDE from 4.7.4 to 4.8.x.

I have run all updates and the added the backports ppa

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

but even after that KDE is still at 4.7.4 and there are no outstanding updates.

Can anyone help?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

As I understand it the backports ppa only has packages for precise and quantal. Since you are not running either one, nothing will be picked up. Also I think the backports ppa is in the 4.4.9x category not 4.4.8x.

Ah! So I have no way of upgrading KDE from 4.7.4 in Mint12? Other than upgrading fo a later version of mint?

Well, if you want to take a chance you can alter the kubuntu backports on your distro to say precise or quantal. This can be done through synaptic or the command line. If you open synaptic and look at the repositories, I would guess yours says oneiric for kubuntu backports. If you change this to say precise and update then you would update to what KDE version is in the precise backports. You can go to https://launchpad.net/~kubuntu-ppa/+archive/backports to see what is there
