This article explains how to upgrade KDE.

Upgrade to latest KDE

Follow these steps to upgrade to the latest KDE.

Waarschuwing: This is an unsupported upgrade involving the use of KDE packages under development for the next openSUSE version - but built for released openSUSE versions. You should join the opensuse-kde mailinglist to avoid unpleasant surprises when there are important changes in the repository in the future.

First add the KDE:Distro:Factory repository. Replace 11.3 with 11.2 or 11.1 if that's what you use:

zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Distro:/Factory/openSUSE_11.3 KDF

Now upgrade the packages:

zypper dup --from KDF


Extra Repository (optional)

If you use the KDE:Extra repository, remove the old instance of that:

zypper rr http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Extra/openSUSE_11.3/

Now add the instance built for KDE:Distro:Factory instead:

zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Extra/openSUSE_11.3_KDE_Distro_Factory/ KDF-extra

Then upgrade the packages:

zypper dup --from KDF-extra


Switch to the NetworkManager Plasmoid (recommended)

When installing KDE 4.5 or later it is recommended to switch from using KNetworkManager to using the Networkmanagement Plasmoid instead.

zypper in plasmoid-networkmanagement

Allow the removal of NetworkManager-kde4


Finally, log out and log back in.


Upgrade to latest Stable KDE

If you're using openSUSE 11.1 or 11.2 you can choose to upgrade to the stable, thoroughly tested, polished KDE packages of openSUSE 11.3 (KDE SC 4.4.4). These are latest "stable" KDE packages from an openSUSE point of view, and the repository only has major change every 8 months when a new openSUSE version is released with a new KDE version.

Add the KDE:Distro:Stable repository. Replace 11.2 with 11.1 if that's what you use:

zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Distro:/Stable/openSUSE_11.2/ KDS

Then upgrade the packages:

zypper dup --from KDS


Extra Repository (optional)

If you use the KDE:Extra repository, remove the old instance of that (replace 11.2 with 11.1 if that's what you use):

zypper rr http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Extra/openSUSE_11.2/

Now add the instance built for KDE:Distro:Stable instead:

zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Extra/openSUSE_11.2_KDE_Distro_Stable/ KDS-extra

Then upgrade the packages:

zypper dup --from KDS-extra


Finally, log out and log back in.
