Definitely, zerozero. I found out about the Chromium issue and got Google Chrome running (YEA!), plus I discovered I could import my chromium settings by copying the contents of ~/.config/chromium/ into~/.config/google-chrome and not lose a single setting. Even my search engines are here, which makes me one very happy blue penguinista.

Now I just need to see if there's a way to turn the lower panel into a Mac-like dock. I had AWN running when I was on Ubuntu and I miss not having the panel across the entire bottom of my screen. I also had a widget style on Mint 10 KDE that I couldn't use with straight LMDE, and as soon as I can remember what it's called (yet again) I'll see if I can get it with this upgraded system.

KDE 4.7.2 updated here with no issues.

You need deb http://qt-kde.debian.net/debian/ experimental-snapshots main in your sources.list along with Debian sid/unstable.

For detailed info see http://qt-kde.debian.net

Basically add the repo then do
apt-get update
apt-get -t experimental-snapshots dist-upgrade
then sit back and wait for the 330+MB to download and the 200+ packages to upgrade.

Does anyone know a way to get kpackagekit for 4.7.2? It's not showing up in Synaptic and I'd really like to be able to use the KDE native package manager instead of Synaptic.

(Yes, I know many people hate kpackagekit. Just consider this one more area where I'm weird. :P )

It's been asked for as a wishlist: http://lists.debian.org/debian-qt-kde/2 ... 00161.html
People are discussing alternative package managers for Wheezy, it seems, at http://lists.debian.org/debian-qt-kde/2 ... 00096.html

But the best way to know about kpackagekit specifically could be to get in contact with the Debian KDE maintainers at http://pkg-kde.alioth.debian.org/qtkde.html *EDIT At http://lists.debian.org/debian-qt-kde/2 ... 00103.html its talked about Apper (ex-kpackagekit) and Muon as KDE package managers.

Thanks for the links. I see I shouldn't expect to see Kpackagekit before February but it's good to see they're looking in that direction. I may end up looking for source code to compile if I get too impatient, but as long as I waited for an upgrade to Mint KDE I think I can handle a couple of months or so for a native package manager.

Good Morning Boston,

In CraigE's long repository list, there's a section for qt-kde: apt-get install pkg-kde-archive-keyring
deb http://qt-kde.debian.net/debian experimental-snapshots main
deb-src http://qt-kde.debian.net/debian experimental-snapshots main

You'll want to do terminal for adding the archive keyring first, then go into your sources list and add the qt-kde repository....hope this helps you....I have LMDE_KDE on my Dell Latitude D810....runs great...cheers and have a great day.


Andrew

Oh BTW, if you want Craig's list, it here: http://sites.google.com/site/mydebiansourceslist/Home

I've already gotten the keyring and the sources in my list. As secipolla posted it's been wishlistlisted but thanks for making sure I have the experimental sources added. I'm loving KDE 4.7.2 installed. It's going to be really difficult for me to go back to an Ubuntu base when Mint 12 KDE comes out after running KDE on LMDE. I love how Mint spoils us KDE users, even when we have to wait.

Things are running pretty smoothly. I had some instances of the desktop and Dolphin windows getting lagged pretty badly but evidently an update in the last few days fixed it. I love it so much that when Mint 12 KDE comes out on Ubuntu I don't think I'll even get it to check it out, although I'd love to be able to get python-appindicator installed so i can use Webilder.

Thanks for answering andrew, zero. I'm glad he didn't have to wait for me to get back online since I only have 'net during the day.

@andrew:
That's the source list I used to get it. zero's the man for getting KDE upgraded on LMDE. I get the feeling I'm going to dread seeing how many rounds I owe him once I can start buying them. Especially since I'll have to make sure I don't get him blind drunk saying thanks. :lol:

Hey zz,

I tried with sid & it borked my system, so I ended up reinstalling and going with stable and the qt-kde experimental repos. Even with sid, it wants to remove 3/4 of my kde install, this is very frustrating, and there's the issue that when I do try to upgrade, a lot of my other programs won't function right....so I don't know.....cheers

Hi to all,
Despite my best efforts and the advice on this thread, I have not been able to get a nice shiny LMDE/kde from my original LMDE/Xfce.

My original sources.list was:
deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream import backport romeo
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/incoming testing main contrib non-free
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/incoming/security testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/incoming/multimedia testing main non-free
…....................................................................................................................
I then did the following changes as recommended by zero zero and others.
After each change to my sources.list I used:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade (followed by a reboot)

Changed from Incoming to Debian testing, update/dist-upgrade, reboot.

Changed from Debian testing to Debian sid, update/dist-upgrade, reboot.

Added the Qt.kde.debian repo
Added the kde keyring:

sudo apt-get install pkg-kde-archive-keyring
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -t experimental-snapshots dist-upgrade
reboot


…................................................................................................................

Anything wrong in particular with my method?
I just feel rather frazzled at the moment and I am inclined to wait for Clem's official LMDE/kde sometime in the New Year.
In any event I am very happy with LMDE/Xfce but I do like to tinker!
Thanks to all.
