KDE is fast becoming my favorite. There are so many advantages of this under-hyped desktop environment. It's highly polished, highly customizable and and nothing less than a dream for a multi-monitor user. If you are already a KDE user, I don't need to tell you all of these things. You already know.
KDE 4.8 was released a few weeks ago. Now, you can easily upgrade your openSUSE machine to KDE 4.8 (KDE 4.8.1 to be precise). Here is a simple how to. Open Konsole and become root
Then run this command:
Now upgrade KDE by running this comman:
zypper dup --from KR48
Now reboot your system and you will be running KDE 4.8.
Warning Remove all repos from the Updated Apps only section (UpdatedApps/Extra) if you are going to use KR48.
If you don't pay attention to the above warning and spill your openSUSE beer, don't blame me.
Note: Thanks Jos Poortvliet for the corrections.
