== Installing 4.9 beta 1 with your distribution packages ==
 
 
===Slackware===
 
 
The packages will be obtainable at http://alien.slackbook.org/ktown/
 
The instructions for usage will be posted on http://alien.slackbook.org/blog/
 
 
===Arch Linux===
 
 
There is a dedicated [kde-unstable] repository. This repo only contains KDE/Calligra beta releases (and their unstable deps); when the stable version is out, the packages are removed.
 
 
Installation steps are at:
 
 
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/KDE#Official_kde-unstable
 
and
 
 
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/DeveloperWiki:KDE#Users
 
 
In case you want to test Pairs alone, you can use the package from aur 'pairs-git': http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=56310
 
 
===Gentoo===
 
 
Provides scm versions (ebuilds) for master/trunk & stable branch, betas and rc's in an extra repository (overlay). Detailed install instructions can be found here:
 
 
http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/desktop/kde/kde4-guide.xml
 
 
===Fedora===
 
 
There is an unofficial kde-unstable/kde-testing and a kde-stable repo maintained by Rex Dieter - the place where the newest bits come for already released stuff. But Fedora Rawhide is always the first place for all builds.
 
 
===Kubuntu===
 
 
==== Using Project Neon ====
 
 
Project neon will install the latest version of KDE *alongside* your current installation.
 
This has the advantage that your main system is not upgraded, but does require a significant more amount of disk space.
 
 
Note that project neon runs with a different KDE config directory so your settings will not be transferred, but also your original settings will not be changed.
 
 
=====Installation=====
 
First add the project neon repository:
 
<syntaxhighlight lang="bash">
 
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:neon/ppa
 
</syntaxhighlight>
 
 
Then upgrade apts list of packages
 
<syntaxhighlight lang="bash">
 
sudo apt-get update
 
</syntaxhighlight>
 
 
Finally install project neon:
 
<syntaxhighlight lang="bash">
 
sudo apt-get install FIXME FIXME FIXME.
 
</syntaxhighlight>
 
 
=====Running=====
 
 
When at your login screen, click the blue arrow to select your Session, here select "Project Neon".
 
To revert back to your original KDE setup, select "KDE Plasma Workspace"
