Try and install Plasma from a live CD provided by several Linux distributions.
The Fedora KDE Spin comes with Plasma. New minor Plasma versions are pushed as regular updates for Fedora installations but live media may contain a slightly older release (depending on Fedora’s release cycle).
- Plasma 4 is included in Fedora 21 KDE (maintained until 1 month after the release of Fedora 23).
- Plasma 5 ships with Fedora 22 and above.
- Plasma 4 is included with ALT Linux KDesktop official distribution since 5.0;
- Weekly updated Regular builds include both KDE4 and KDE5 ones (installable LiveCDs built upon our unstable development branch dubbed Sisyphus).
Alien BOB (Eric Hameleers) provides a Live image for Plasma 5 based on the development tree "slackware64-current". Login/password are both "live".
