How to install test versions of Plasma Next



openSUSE offers snapshots from git master updated frequently as well. Add the KDE:Unstable:Frameworks repository ( 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.


`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".
