This is a basic set of KDE packages backported from Bionic to Xenial. The only KDE metapackages (including all required depenencies) built here are: kde-plasma-desktop and kde-baseapps. Only selective additional backports will be added to this PPA, so for Xenial users wanting a newer full KDE 5 software suite there are many more KDE 5.80.x backports at another PPA:


*** Install ***

Newer Qt than Xenial is required for these KDE packages. Also, a newer GPG than Xenial default is required for successful install of libkf5wallet-bin & libkwalletbackend5-5 packages (required by kio, a core KDE package), and the most recent additions (kwin & plasma-desktop) are built with a newer display stack which is then also required for successful installation.

NOTE: Adding all required PPAs and upgrading the KDE stack brings major changes to a Xenial installation. So please do a full system backup first (as always for major upgrades!) then do these steps to upgrade Qt and KDE:

  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/graphics
  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/multimedia
  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/ffmpeg4
  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/gpg
  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/display
  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/qt-xenial
  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:savoury1/kde-xenial
  sudo apt-get update
  sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
