    where's my KDE4?

    Although I've upgraded to 8.04, I'm still stuck on KDE 3.5.9, according to "About KDE" , plus :

    $ which kded
    $ kded --version
    Qt: 3.3.8b
    KDE: 3.5.9
    KDE Daemon: $Id: kded.cpp 711061 2007-09-11 09:42:51Z tpatzig $

    But dpkg tells me I have a bunch of KDE 4 packages, as far as I can tell:

    $ dpkg-query -l '*kde*' | grep 'ii.*4:3' | awk '{print $2, $3}'
    kde-icons-mono 4:3.5.9-0ubuntu1
    kdeadmin-kfile-plugins 4:3.5.9-0ubuntu5
    kdebase-bin 4:3.5.9-0ubuntu7.2
    kdebase-bin-kde3 4:3.5.9-0ubuntu7.2
    kdebase-data 4:3.5.9-0ubuntu7.2
    kdebase-kio-plugins 4:3.5.9-0ubuntu7.2
    kdegraphics-kfile-plugins 4:3.5.9-0ubuntu1
    kdelibs-data 4:3.5.9-0ubuntu7.1
    kdelibs4c2a 4:3.5.9-0ubuntu7.1
    kdemultimedia-kfile-plugins 4:3.5.9-0ubuntu2
    kdemultimedia-kio-plugins 4:3.5.9-0ubuntu2
    kdenetwork-filesharing 4:3.5.9-0ubuntu1
    kdenetwork-kfile-plugins 4:3.5.9-0ubuntu1
    kdepasswd 4:3.5.9-0ubuntu7.2
    kdepim-kio-plugins 4:3.5.9-0ubuntu3
    kdepim-kresources 4:3.5.9-0ubuntu3
    kdepim-wizards 4:3.5.9-0ubuntu3
    kdeprint 4:3.5.9-0ubuntu7.2
    kdesktop 4:3.5.9-0ubuntu7.2
    libkdepim1a 4:3.5.9-0ubuntu3

    I thought upgrading to 8.04 would put me on KDE 4. How can I switch to it?

    Install the kde4-core package
    sudo apt-get install kde4-core
    You will then be able to log in to either a kde3 or kde4 desktop environment.

    Aside from that, Kubuntu Hardy was released in two different versions: the supported 3.5 and the unsupported 4.
    I do not use Ubuntu any more, nor have I ever used Gnome. Therefore, I tend to give advice that is distro- and DE-agnostic, which, while perhaps not the easiest way, will allow you to move freely between machines.

    That's it, having installed the packages as above, I'm now up and going with KDE4, which looks really cool, I might add...

    many thanks!
