Upgrading KDE CE from felicia

Postby orangepeelbeef » Mon Aug 17, 2009 3:37 pm

Since nobody else seems to be posting upgrade instructions, here is what I have done to complete the upgrade:

replace your /etc/apt/sources.list with the one from this post:


sudo apt-get update

you should see a couple of errors with the keys

sudo apt-get install linuxmint-keyring

you will still have one error, use the alphanumeric code from the ppa error when running the next command

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys INSERTCODEHERE

now you should be able to

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

sudo apt-get install mint-meta-kde
