Thread: Keeping KDE up to date between releases

    Question Keeping KDE up to date between releases

    Question:

    I've been using openSUSE as my primary workstation OS for about a year now and I really like it. One thing I'm curious about, though, is how I might be able to keep KDE more up to date. For example, I noticed that while I was on 11.4, my version of KDE never changed. I'm now running 12.1 and my KDE version is 4.7.2 release 5 and I'm wondering if there is a way to keep KDE more up to date while I wait for the next version of openSUSE.

    Is there a way to keep KDE more current between releases of openSUSE?

    Thanks!

    Versions of KDE won't change during a release's lifecycle.
    You could look at Database error - openSUSE
    Or you look at moving to the Tumbleweed version of openSUSE Database error - openSUSE

    Edit: Oh, great I hit post and the forum auto populates the url titles as 'Database error'... Seems that the opensuse.org site is having some problems right now, the links are good but what's at the end of them is currently 'Database error'.

    Sure, and well documented.
    All you have to do is to add further repositories to your software
    management. There are plenty available for all favours at
    http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/
    Typical KDE repositories are:
    KDE:Stable
    KDE:Release
