Mint 14.2 KDE?

Postby cavedweller on Fri Dec 28, 2012 7:47 pm

Just palying with the system today.

Some Pre release Playing not for others to use on production or critical eqiptment.


Be aware that both Raring and KDE R1 are both pre-release version. They are still both buggy despite what you might read elsewhere.

Multiple Repositories from more than one Ubuntu based distro were used in this exercise in futillity.

Changed sources.list.d as follows:
## -----------------------
## LINUX MINT REPOSITORIES
## -----------------------
deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ nadia main upstream import
# deb-src http://packages.linuxmint.com/ nadia main upstream import

## -----------------------
## LINUX MINT REPOSITORIES
## -----------------------
deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ nadia main upstream import
# deb-src http://packages.linuxmint.com/ nadia main upstream import

Change scouces.list to:

Added all the keys. Ran sudo apt-get update, sudo apt-get upgrade, sudo apt-get dist-upgrade.

bc@bc-lt ~ $ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: LinuxMint
Description: Linux Mint 14 Nadia
Release: 14
Codename: nadia

So since I am now using raring and kde 4.9.95. I will say LinuxMint 14.2.

It was just something to do to pass the day.

moved here, it seems a better place for this kind of topic
maybe you should highlight the playing and place in the topic a bigger disclaimer that this is not recommended, can break the installation and shouldn't be done in production machines.

Not to mention any support you need for this setup should be requested from the Kubuntu Forums in their 13.04 development thread, as none of that is subject to support here.

Not to mention you are dealing with beta software. Doesn't matter if ubuntu, kubuntu repos it is still buggy and missing a lot of stuff and still needs a lot of work. It will sure let you see the bugs in what's coming. :lol:

Oh well it was something to do today to push a fresh install. I wouldn't recommend doing it.

Right now KDE 4.10 is still to juvenile and needs to be run for bug identification. Raring is in the same situation as are most pre-release versions out there offering betas of 4.10.

Kind of like the merry go round at the park. Play on it at your own risk. It can be fun, but will likely lead to a re-install of system,

Actually considering all Mint is really is, is another spin of Ubuntu like kubuntu, it really only boils down to what the base distro was you started with. All are using the same repos with a couple of their own added to personalize it to their spin, and all are running previous stable, current stable, or pre-release beta. The big difference between Ubuntu repos and Kubuntu repos is with Kubuntu repos you are getting a jump on KDE software that is coming to the Ubuntu Repos.

You are right should have posted to in Kubuntu Forums. Kubuntu seems to be a smaller base distro where you set it up and customizw it to what you want. where Mint seems to be more geared towards those with little to know linux/debian experience and want everything installed right out of the box.

As I said though in the post was something to do for the day. Should also set a spark off in the casual readers head that some of these distros repos are pretty much interchangeable. So what you are actually doing with them is seasoning the OS on your system to your taste. So if you are using a system that isn't critical, then don't be afraid to experiment.

I put a couple of warnings at the top of it. :lol:

As I said at the bottom of the original post, it was something to do for the day. Niether Raring or KDE R1 are anywhere near ready for release. They are both out there going through the process to make them usable in a few months down the road.
