Article: KDE 4.9 Update

Upgrade your openSUSE release with kde 4.9

Written for openSUSE 12.2

This upgrade practice can be applied to earlier versions such as 12.1 - I’ll show the repo code for 12.1 as well.

If you have previously used other kde repos, you need to remove those.

Add the New repo:

For 12.2:

su -
zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Release:/49/openSUSE_12.2/ kde49

For 12.1:

su -
zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Release:/49/openSUSE_12.1/ kde49

zypper ref

(a) to accept key - if you are asked

Now we move to software management and switch to the new repo, like this:

*(You may need to opt to keep obsolete k3b) which is from Packman

Great - thanks for clear instructions.
