WARNING---ALL OF THIS IS EXPERIMENTAL AND BASED OFF BACKPORTS
THIS MEANS THAT IT WILL CHANGE


This will allow you to install the latest KDE version from backports.

First you need to go to terminal.

Code: Select all
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports


Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update


Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install kde-full


Currently the version is 4.11

Ok, so I've installed from backports but I do not have the option to choose KDE at login?

Which dm did you choose during install? KDE will install kdm and gives you the option of which one you want to choose, I am assuming you had lightdm to start. With lightdm it is the circle, with kdm it will be choose session type or an arrow, although it can differ since kdm is extremely customisable.

I'm off to work, don't do anything drastic, I am sure if you did install correctly you just need to switch session.

Pretty sure but if you want I can find out. Too late to start now, as I know I will keep going until I am set up, and if I encounter errors I will hammer them instead of being collected, lol. Works, but not too great from an advisory angle.

Lite is already ready to go pretty much but if you do install from 3.4 lite you need to lose yarrsr,

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get purge yarssr


It's just not worth the hassle and you will be installing akregator anyways.

I'm not sure. I did have a box pop up during install but I couldn't seem to click the ok button. I tried pressing enter aswell but nothing seemed to happen. If I recall I had to close out of the window!

if you install kde it may prompt you to choose which display manager you want to use during boot up...

neways to check which display managers you have..
Code: Select all
ls /etc/init.d/ |grep dm


it will show you which display managers are installed like lightdm, kdm etc etc(the others are different init scripts and not related) ...
