Thread: How do I install KDE kup?

Hybrid View

  1. #1

    Question How do I install KDE kup?

    Hi KDE kup isn't listed in suse software mgmt even though it's a standard KDE application. BTW I'm on Kryon, downloaded today 29/9/20 and completely up to date.

    I also tried to install from KDE's kup page and discover complains with

    'couldn't open appstream://org.kde.kup.desktop'.

    So how do I install kup?

    Thanks.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum
    I think your after kbackup (kup is a kernel uploader....) "Backup program based on KDE Frameworks 5".

    Thanks for the fast reply, this is my 1st opensuse installation, so much is different! Anyway ....

    kbackup is standalone, kup is added into system settings:

    https://kde.org/applications/en/kup

    I use kup on Neon unstable and Arch.

    Is this what you're looking for?

    "kup-backup" - Backup scheduler for the Plasma desktop Version: 0.8.0-1.1

    if so, then it's in the KDE Extra repository: http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...USE_Tumbleweed

    I'm on Kryon so my repos are unstable, ie KDE extras is KDE/Unstable/Extra.

    $ zypper install kup-backup says it doesn't exist.

    If I use the web software portal I can find kup-backup and install a tumbleweed experimental version with a .ymp file but it wants to add 5 repos (all stable, including KDE/Extra) which all contradict with what I have so I'll not do that until I know more, ie if these repos can co-exist.

    As you obviously know, "mix 'n' match" repos are not a good idea.

    I've no idea if it would work in your case, but... You could directly download the RPM http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...1.1.x86_64.rpm and try to install, although there may be dependency problems.

    I'm guessing that was a mispelling of "Krypton". But I could be wrong, and that was only a guess.

    Oops yes, I mispelled it, should have been krypton, sorry.

    OK... should have. as @nrickert did, guessed that.

    Indeed kup-backup is not included in the repository.

    Have you tried installing a directly downloaded file? (http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...1.1.x86_64.rpm)

    Code:
    sudo zypper install {path to the file}/kup-backup-0.8.0-1.1.x86_64.rpm
    although as I said you may run into dependency issues... but worth a try.
