How to install test versions of Plasma Next

KDE neon

KDE neon has the latest builds of Plasma built continuously from releases, Git stable branches or Git unstable branches.

Kubuntu

Packages for Kubuntu Vivid Next and Next backports PPAs for Utopic (15.04) are now deprecated and beyond end-of-life. The present release is Wily, 15.10.

To test upgrade to Xenial, which will be released in April 2016, please use the PPA-purge package to remove PPAs and packages from PPAs, and install `kubuntu-desktop` meta-package, and finally:

sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade

before initiating:

sudo devel-release-upgrade -d

to move to Xenial. Instructions for moving to the beta will be given here once it is released.

openSUSE

openSUSE offers snapshots from git master updated frequently as well. Add the KDE:Unstable:Frameworks repository (http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:KDE_repositories#Plasma_Next) and the Qt53 repository (available at the same link) and install the plasma-next-session package to have a session available at the next login.

Gentoo

Gentoo is packaging releases in the official Portage tree, usually a stable version and in addition the latest upstream release in a timely manner (see Packages: kde-plasma/plasma-meta for current status). It also provides beta, current stable branch and master branch ebuilds inside kde overlay. The following command will install a full Plasma desktop, configurable via multiple USE flags, this being Gentoo.

emerge plasma-meta

See the KDE Plasma wiki for detailed installation instructions.

Fedora

Now that Plasma 5 has been released, Fedora packaging only tracks the official Plasma 5 releases, not snapshots. See Plasma/Packages#Fedora for installation instructions.

Arch

Plasma 5 workspace is available through the official repositories. For the full installation, simply install plasma-next.
Frameworks 5 libraries are also in the official repositories under kf5 and kf5-aids.
There are git versions of the above, as well as many other Frameworks 5 applications installable through the AUR.

See the KDE page on the ArchWiki for more information.

From Source

Following the instructions here it will automatically build all KDE software that has a KF5 port, most notably the Plasma workspaces, but also development previews of Kate, Konsole and Dolphin.

Afterwards follow the guides for "Runtime setup" and then run "kwin --replace" and "plasmashell".

Live CD
