This article explains how to upgrade KDE.


Upgrade to Latest Stable KDE Packages

If you're not using the latest openSUSE release (eg. 113. when 11.4 already was released) you can choose to upgrade to the stable, thoroughly tested, polished KDE packages. These are latest "stable" KDE packages from an openSUSE point of view, and the repository only has a major change every 8 months when a new openSUSE version is released with a new KDE version.

Add the KDE:Distro:Stable repository. Replace 11.4 with your openSUSE version:

zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Distro:/Stable/openSUSE_11.4/ KDS

Then upgrade the packages:

zypper dup --from KDS

Extra Repository (optional)

Now add the instance built for KDE:Extra repository (replace 11.4 with your openSUSE version):

zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Extra/openSUSE_11.4/  KDS-extra

Then upgrade the packages:

zypper dup --from KDS-extra


Finally, log out and log back in.


Upgrade to Latest Release from Upstream KDE

Follow these steps to upgrade to the latest KDE.

Attention This is an unsupported upgrade involving the use of a moving and barely tested repository.


First add the KDE:Release:46 repository. Replace 11.4 with your openSUSE version:

zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Release:/46/openSUSE_11.4/ KR46

Now upgrade the packages:

zypper dup --from KR46


Extra Repository (optional)

If you use the KDE:Extra repository, remove the old instance of that: (replace 11.4 with your openSUSE version)

zypper rr http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Extra/openSUSE_11.4/

Now add the instance built for KDE:Release:46 instead:

zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Extra/KDE_Release_46_openSUSE_11.4/ KR46-extra

Then upgrade the packages:

zypper dup --from KR46-extra

Upgrade to Factory KDE Packages

Follow these steps to upgrade to the latest KDE.

Attention 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 11.4 with your openSUSE version:

zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Distro:/Factory/openSUSE_11.4 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: (replace 11.4 with your openSUSE version)

zypper rr http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Extra/openSUSE_11.4/

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

zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Extra/openSUSE_11.4_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 or run the following in konsole:

kquitapp knetworkmanager
qdbus org.kde.kded /kded loadModule networkmanagement
