I am having some random 100% CPU problems while trying out KDE, so someone suggested I upgrade to 4.6.2, which is in the PPA here: https://launchpad.net/~kubuntu-ppa/+archive/backports (https://launchpad.net/%7Ekubuntu-ppa/+archive/backports)

Unfortunately, when I enable that PPA, only some of the packages upgrade, like kcalc, kamera, kmag, etc.

kdm and another 161 packages are 'kept back' and stay on 4.5.5. I am running Maverick (10.10), but this PPA seems to specifically be for Maverick. How can I upgrade KDE to 4.6.2?

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
