KDE neon Comes Alive!

We’ve been working hard at KDE neon HQ to get the project going and today I’m pleased to say the Developer Unstable package archive is up and running. This gives daily packages of KDE Frameworks and Plasma desktop built direct from Git master branches. Expect some breakage, it’s called unstable for a reason. Ideal for testers and contributors to these two projects. To install it you’ll need an install of *buntu 15.10 (wily) and follow the Package Upgrade instructions.

In fact we already had some breakage where some packages sneaked in with larger version numbers than they should have, if you installed packages last week you’ll need to remove them and reinstall. Harald added some cleverness to stop this happening in future.

apt remove plasma-framework libkf5plasma5 libkf5plasmaquick5 libkf5solid5 libkf5solid5-data libkf5sonnet5-data libkf5sonnetcore5 libkf5sonnetui5 libkf5threadweaver5 qml-module-org-kde-solid qtdeclarative-kf5solid sonnet-plugins
apt install neon-desktop

(This will also remove applications has neon has no KDE applications yet, just apt install dolphin konsole and anything else you want.)

Coming soon in no particular order… Developer Stable packages built from Git stable branches, User Stable packages built from released apps, KDE Applications packages and installable images.
