Howto: KDE 3.5.6 on kubuntu 6·10 (edgy)

Filed under: kde, Kubuntu, Tuxicity — tuxicity @ 3:35 pm

Open kate (or another editor) as admin:

kdesu kate /etc/apt/sources.list

add this line:

deb http://kubuntu.org/packages/kde-356 edgy main

Save and close.

These packages have been digitally signed using Jonathan Riddell's key.A copy of the key is also kept on people.ubuntu.com for verification.
To add this key do:
wget http://people.ubuntu.com/~jriddell/kubuntu-packages-jriddell-key.gpg
sudo apt-key add kubuntu-packages-jriddell-key.gpg


sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Thats it 🙂

 Thanks kubuntu.org

  2. I’m having problems with deadkeys in KDE 3.5.5 since i change the encoding to ISO-8859-1.
    Hi hope this upgrade fix this problem…
