Plasma 2014.6 is a whole new version and won't co-install with Plasma 1. Nevertheless some parts of runtime should co-install so apps using kdelibs4 can run under Plasma Next.

Frameworks Coinstallability page

not co-installable

these overlap with KDELibs 4 equivalents from kde-workspace, no change expected

  • libksysguard
  • ksysguard
  • kinfocenter
  • kmenuedit
  • kwrited
  • systemsettings
  • khelpcenter
  • powerdevil


clashing files with kde 4's kde-runtime:


No reason why this needs to co-install but Martin asked. Clashing files with kde4 kwin:

  • /usr/bin/kwin (due to be renamed?)
  • /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/
  • (needs sobump anyway?)
  • (needs sobump anyway?)
  • (needs sobump anyway?)
  • /usr/share/doc/HTML/en/kcontrol/windowspecific

Question: why did kwin.png and kcmkwm.png move from apps to actions? They might need renamed apart from this.
