How to install test versions of Plasma Next

Kubuntu

Add the Neon5 repository:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:neon/kf5-snapshot-weekly
sudo apt-get update

(If you would like more frequent updates, (which also bear the risk of breaking more often!), use "ppa:neon/kf5-snapshot-daily" or "ppa:neon/kf5" for the most frequent updates. To install Project Neon 5, issue the command

sudo apt-get install project-neon5-session project-neon5-utils \
 project-neon5-konsole

Running Project Neon 5

The LightDM login screen will now offer a Project Neon 5 session. You can also run neon5-env, and start plasma-shell from there. By default, we start an xterm with the environment set up. In order to start plasma, run "plasma-shell", for Konsole, start "konsole". If you want to keep your current session running (which is probably most convenient), you can run

 neon5-env
 plasma-shell --windowed

to start Plasma in a window (not as desktop or root window).

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 provides beta as well as live ebuilds inside kde overlay, with dependencies in qt overlay. The following assumes you have a basic understanding of Gentoo Portage and already set up layman initially:

layman -a kde && layman -a qt
emerge @kde-next-live --autounmask-write=y


To make the most of it, run

layman -S && smart-live-rebuild

to get the latest packaging changes for qt and kde and update any live packages that got new commits since last time.

Fedora

Fedora provides 3 COPR repositories, that must be added to yum in order to install Plasma Next. Note that all packages are installed into /usr, so conflicts with KDE 4 packages might occur.

cd /etc/yum.repos.d/
wget http://copr.fedoraproject.org/coprs/dvratil/kde-frameworks/repo/fedora-20-x86_64/dvratil-kde-frameworks-fedora-20-x86_64.repo
wget http://copr.fedoraproject.org/coprs/dvratil/kde-frameworks-unstable/repo/fedora-20-x86_64/dvratil-kde-frameworks-unstable-fedora-20-x86_64.repo
wget http://copr.fedoraproject.org/coprs/dvratil/plasma-next/repo/fedora-20-x86_64/dvratil-plasma-next-fedora-20-x86_64.repo
yum install kde5-\*

On 32bit system, replace x86_64 by i386. On rawhide, replace fedora-20 by fedora-rawhide.

If you want to build packages locally, SRPMs are available on http://dvratil.fedorapeople.org/kf5/srpm and http://dvratil.fedorapeople.org/kde5/srpm.


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".
