KDE SC 4.12.4 released, install it on openSUSE 13.1

The monthly update for KDE SC 4.12.4 has been released today. It’s a bug fix and maintenance release which brings bug fixes and minor improvements. This release also includes an updated Plasma Workspaces 4.11.8. Improvements were made to Kontact, Konqueror, Dolphin and some other apps.

openSUSE community just made it easier to stay updated to the latest KDE SC releases. The community recently announced a new repository “KDE:Current” which stays udated with the latest KDE Software. In order to update to the latest release, first of all remove any extra or KDE repositories added to your system – you won’t need them from now onwards. Once removed run following commands (for openSUSE 13.1) to add the Current repo to your system:

zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Current/openSUSE_13.1/ current
zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Extra/KDE_Current_openSUSE_13.1/ currentextra
zypper dup --from current
zypper dup --from currentextra

We are looking for aspiring bloggers and journalists for The Mukt. If you are interested, apply now!

The Current repository will be updated regularly. KDE SC 4.13 will replace 4.12 when it becomes stable. There is no need to add additional repos in future.
