== 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, this means original settings will not be affected.
 
 
=====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 stable KDE setup, select "KDE Plasma Workspace" at the login screen.
