Install KDE SC 4.12 in Kubuntu

KDE SC was released a few days ago and I have already upgraded my openSUSE and Arch machines with it. That left my Kubuntu box behind which I updated today. It’s as easy to get KDE SC 4.12 on Kubuntu as it was on Arch or openSUSE.

Open terminal and first add Kubuntu Backport PPA to your system:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports

Hit Enter key when asked to import public key

Then run this command

ssudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
