i followed up this howot, to upgrade painless and seamlesly to kde 4.10
this howot works if you already have kde 4.9 installed

- open a terminal
- login as root

1- add-apt-repository ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports
2- apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade

apply all updates, no reboot required

that's it

Because you might run into some problems unless you are on a clean install of Linux Mint 14 KDE, I'd recommend you keep to zerozero's extra steps: viewtopic.php?f=109&t=124912#p684113
