Upgrading kde 2.2 to 3.x in debian 3.0r2


I just happened to installed to install debian 3.0r2 finally ! :-)

It has kde 2.2 with it which I would like to upgrade to 3.x. Can anyone guide me steps to it. I know it is through apt-get but I am not able to get it.

Sincerely,

Anmol Misra

Here are the steps;

edit /etc/apt/sources.list and add the following line;
deb http://download.kde.org/stable/3.1.4/Debian stable main

do apt-get update && apt-get install arts kdelibs kdebase kdegraphics kdeadmin

when these have been installed;

do apt-get install kdemultimedia kdepim kdenetwork (and any other apps you fancy)

Double check that line in /etc/apt/sources.list
then repeat using;
apt-get update
apt-get install arts kdelibs kdebase kdegraphics kdeadmin

I have just checked the packages file and kdegraphics is definitely there.
