Please Backport KDE 4.8 To LinuxMint 12 KDE...

Hi,

Running LinuxMint 12 KDE 64Bit.
KDE included in this release is somewhat unstable.
Can the devs backport KDE 4.8 to LinuxMint 12 KDE?
Thanks!

You can use the kubuntu backports!

I'm doing it too.
But, is there a safe way to downgrade to 4.7 again in case of needed ?

I think you can't. But don't worry. KDE 4.8.1 is behaving quite nicely.

Hi,

Thanks for the instructions to update to current KDE 4.8.
It worked.
