Thread: KDE 4.11 Install?

  1. #1

    Question KDE 4.11 Install?

    Hey all, this is my first time using the forums, so please forgive any error in thread placement.

    If anyone could help me out, I was wondering how I would go about upgrading my current version of KDE--4.10.5--to the newer and stable 4.11. I was reading a page on adding KDE's repos and proceeded to do that, however after refreshing my repos I got no notice of new packages that needed to be installed. Perhaps I'm missing something here.

    I'm trying to update my version of KDE so that I can install the newest release of Amarok; I'm wanting to add/copy music to/from my iPod.

    Please excuse any ignorance on my part, I've only been using openSUSE for the past few months or so. If anyone could provide me with any feedback, it would be greatly appreciated.
    -Alex

    Default AW: KDE 4.11 Install?

    Have you done a "zypper dup --from $added_KDE_repo"?

    Same question was some days ago. Maybe you can benefit from some answers:

    You could als use the updatedapps repositorie for 12.3 and install amarok
    from there.

    No need to upgrade your entire KDE.

    Thank you. I ended up adding the required repos and went ahead and installed KDE 4.11. If I did want to revert to a previous version of KDE though, would I simply remove the repositories and perform an update?

    The packages that I switched would simply be reverted to a previous version, right?

    Again, thank you for the advice.

    Not quite as simple as that, since an update doesn't downgrade packages. You would need to run
    Code:
    zypper dup
    And after that perform the switch again on packman

    Or, perhaps a little less scary. Use the R410 repo in place of the removed R411 and switch on it.
