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 `layman -a kde && layman -a qt`, `emerge @kde-next-live` and a daily run of `smart-live-rebuild` which will only update packages that really got new commits. 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".
