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 kdeinit5 --kded kwin --replace & plasmashell 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. See also: Gentoo KDE/Frameworks Packaging Status Fedora On Fedora 20, you need to add Copr repository with KDE Frameworks first: 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 Fedora 21 and above ship KDE Frameworks in distrubition repositories. Add Plasma 5 Copr to Yum and install plasma-5 meta-package, that will install all needed packages. wget http://copr.fedoraproject.org/coprs/dvratil/plasma-5/repo/fedora-20-x86_64/dvratil-plasma-5-fedora-20-x86_64.repo yum install plasma5 On Fedora 21, replace fedora-20 by fedora-21. On 32bit system, replace x86_64 by i386. Our Plasma 5 packages are mostly co-installable with KDE 4, except for the Workspace itself. If you use DNF, simply install dnf-plugins-core and run dnf copr enable dvratil/kde-frameworks dnf copr enable dvratil/plasma-5 dnf install plasma5 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".
