KDE 3.x.x upgrade on Mandrake 8.2

Recommended Posts

Well, how can I upgrade my KDE to 3.0.3 for example?

 

I saw different possibilities, including using a frontend for APT, that requires only a few steps to install and upgrade. Did anyone try it, or has easy ways to do this?

Hmm, nevermind, I found it easier to download the RPMs from www.kde.org and install 3.0.3 alongside 2.2.

 

WOW it looks good, esp. with the Liquid theme and the Conectiva Crystal Icons smile

I check it out tomorrow. KDE 3.0.3 is also included in the latest beta release of Red Hat 7.4 which I download right now smile

 

Btw are there any websites about APT on Mandrake? I noticed that an official APT package is now in cooker.

Look for Synaptic...i think there is a guide on pclinuxonline.com

 

The RPMs are here:

ftp://ftp.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/distributions/contrib/texstar/apt/Mandrake/

 

Download all 4 of them, install Synaptic and you will have an Icon on the desktop (or in the menu, under configuration, package management).

Don't forget to copy the "sources.list" file in /etc/apt.
