KDE 3.5 in (K)Ubuntu

December 7, 2005

Yep, KDE 3.5 was released for just some days ago and packages for Ubuntu was available fast after the release. Unforntunately the packages for PowerPC has not been released offical yet. I have used the "test" packages for PowerPC since the release of KDE 3.5 and they seems to work well. I do not however know when they will be released at http://www.kubuntu.org/ so thought it might be intresting for more to test out KDE 3.5 on PowerPC.

The packages are available at http://kubuntu.org/~amu/pool.

To install KDE 3.5 on your computer edit /etc/apt/sources.list and add

deb http://kubuntu.org/~amu/pool ./

Then execute
> apt-get update

to download the packages and run
> apt-get dist-upgrade

to install the packages.

Please, report if you find any problems.

Btw, KDE 3.5 kicks ass :P

    The page http://kubuntu.org/~amu/pool does not exist so I can't install kde 3.5. Please, can you fix it?

    You maybe can try, deb http://kubuntu.org/packages/kde351/ breezy main. It's KDE 3.5.1 for Breezy and will probably go offical soon.
