Re: Is it possible to install KDE on Mint 14 without a reins

i am triple booted with mint 13 kde and did a dist-upgrade from terminal and i am currently running kde 4.9.4.i wouldnt rush into installing the 14 kde rc just yet.its better to wait for the final as the rc is still in testing.just do a upgrade from the terminal.

UPDATED!!Bcm4312-lpphy install for Mint 14

this package is all you need for all debian-based distros.just install it by double or single-clicking the file and select install.do a quick reboot and your wireless should be up and running.
