KDE 4.4.1 released on March 2nd

Recommended Posts

Add ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports to the repositories.

Rather an odd piece of advice to give to a Mandriva user! :P

KDE 4.4 is simply the best DE ever, and 4.4.1 cured many outstanding bugs. Personally, I only had one issue with KDM (logout/reboot/halt not working properly after upgrade), but the cure was really simple: dleteing kdmrc, and reinstalling KDM. Now, it's working perfectly (using both plain Archlinux/KDE 4.4.1 on my laptop, and Kdemod 4.4.1 on my desktop).

 For those of you Mandriva users interested in trying 4.4.0 as root do:

 

urpmi.addmedia KDE-4.4.0 ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/stable/4.4.0/Mandriva/2010.0/i586 with media_info/hdlist.cz

 

For 64bit users replace i586 with x86_64.  Then do:

urpmi.update -a && urpmi --auto-select --auto

 

If you break your system, don't holla at me :D

If you do

 urpmi --auto --auto-select --test

then you will see if you need to do anything else prior to installation. ;)

Pardon my ignorance (new to Linux but willing to learn the easy bits), doesn't that just install KDE 4.4.0?

 

At least it did on my pc!

That thanks was for my link to try 4.4.0 not 4.4.1

So how do I get 4.4.1?

urpmi.addmedia KDE-4.4.1 ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/stable/4.4.1/Mandriva/i586 with media_info/hdlist.cz

 

Then do:

 

 

urpmi.update -a && urpmi --auto-select --auto
