The unofficial LMDE KDE UP6
webworker has been so kind to host the LMDE KDE iso's on his server!
You can find the mirror links below.

Read a review of the unofficial LMDE KDE in the last issue of Full Circle Magazine for 2012, written by Ronnie Tucker:
(Click on the FCM cover front image to download the pdf).
- Complete rework of Device Driver Manager, Debian Plymouth Manager and the Welcome Screen.
- The 64-bit version is now multiarch.
- Playonlinux and Wine are pre-installed.
ad 3. I wish to differentiate between the unofficial LMDE KDE and the unofficial LMDE Xfce. That's why the first is going to have all the bells and whistles (I remember it was an old wish of you people to include Playonlinux and Wine) while the second is going to be lean and mean.
SR1 solved some bugs in DDM and the update manager will now show correctly your running update pack 6.
You can download the iso's here or from my homepage.
If you are running UP5 and you haven't upgraded yet, you can download a bash script that I've been using to create the isos: http://www.schoelje.nl/lmdekde/packages/lmdekde-up6-upgrade (right click and save link as...).
This will also install Playonlinux and Wine.
After upgrade you need to reboot, and don't forget to reinstall your drivers with DDM.

Don't forget to choose a repository mirror when you're done installing:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update
Device Driver Manager (DDM)
The purpose of the application is to facilitate easy driver install for inexperienced users.
Supported hardware: Nvidia, ATI, Intel, VIA and Braodcom.
It can also check whether you can upgrade your kernel to pae if you are running 32-bit on a multi-core system.

Debian Plymouth Manager (DPM)
Front-end for Plymouth.
With this tool you can set your Plymouth (splash at boot) theme and its resolution as well as installing or removing Plymouth themes from your system.

This new welcome screen includes third-party hardware detection.
The actual driver installation is done by DDM.
