    Default How upgrade KDE but keep openSUSE look?

    I want to upgrade my KDE install but I don't want to lose the openSUSE theme (the green, the icons, etc). How do I do that?

    I'm in OpenSUSE 11.0, KDE 4.0.4 and I want to upgrade KDE to 4.1.3.

    add these repo's

    KDE4 Factory:

    Desktop:
    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.0

    Extra:
    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Extra-Apps/openSUSE_11.0

    Community:
    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Community/openSUSE_11.0_KDE4_Factory_Desktop

    =====================================================

    Be warned. 4.0.4 does not like the upgrade and you may have to start with a new .kde4 folder.
    If you don't understand this - ask back here

    When you update use Yast Software Management and do 'Update All Unconditionally' in the newly added repo's
    (I have a video you can download to see that method)

    ===============================================

    I have moved on to the unstable 4.2 but it's great. But maybe try 4.1.3 first

    Where do I add those repositories? With rpm or zypper at the command line? In YAST?

    I am new to this, so what exactly does that entail?

    I assume this is in Yast's "Install Software"?

    thanks!

    You can "zypper ar http://your_new_repository arbitrary_name_for_the_repo" or use Yast → Software → Repositories.

    In your home folder there's a hidden folder called .kde4. That's the place where KDE4 stores your KDE4 configuration. Make a backup of your current .kde4 folder and try if 4.1 works with the original .kde folder. If not, just delete .kde4 while you are in runlevel 3 or so. On the next start of KDE a new .kde folder will be created.
    I assume this is in Yast's "Install Software"?
    That's where I usually do it.
    The opensuse style you don't want to lose comes with the opensuse-branding packages in the repos above. Those will be upgraded automatically, too. I'd like to mention that I just upgraded to KDE4.2 beta from the unstable repositories and it works really well. Much better than 4.1.x. In order to upgrade I had to add the Qt repository as well Index of /repositories/KDE:/Qt/openSUSE_11.0

    Yes. You need the QT for 4.2 but he was asking for 4.1.3

    I have added the repo's but can't figure out how to do the update all and the video won't play for some reason. It's just a blank screen. How do I do this?

    Do I do:

    YAST -> Online Update

    Then Choose (from the dropdown) one of the repositories you posted and then from the top menu choose:

    package -> All Packages -> Update Unconditionally

    Is that right?

    Maybe you are not ready for this. The video does work I just tried it again myself.

    With the conflict error box, press the expert button and save the error to file then copy it here so we can see it.
