Is there kde-core-kde3 for jaunty?


I still use 8.04 and wishes to migrate to 9.04, my problem is that I can't install kde-core for 9.04 using kde 3 and not kde 4. I only use the basic setup, and customize it from there. Is there a way for me to install kde 3.5 without installing kubuntu-desktop-kde3?

You can try going here: https://wiki.kubuntu.org/Kubuntu/Kde3/Jaunty and following their instructions for installation.

The link shown by @ penguiniator is for 'a fresh install'

See " ISO Image 698 MB "

forgive me for not making clear..

I installed ubuntu command line system from an alternate CD installer of ubuntu 9.04. As it is, just a command line system and I just wish to install kde-core only and start from there, not the whole kubuntu-desktop-kde3 package. I tried kde-core-kde3 but didn't work. Installing kde-core as it is, would install kde4.

"....want to install kde-core only and start from there,
not the whole kubuntu-desktop-kde3 package. "

I don't think it is possible with the official packages,
all for /usr/lib , etc.

The "Pearson kde-3.5.10" installs to /usr/kde3.5/lib/, etc.
and thus kept separated from the KDE4 files.

Try downloading some of it, there is a 'patch' 90 MB,
which I guess contains the kde3.5 packages.

The usual definition for kde-core :
"...the bare-minimum required– of KDE. That is,
kdebase, kdelibs, arts and fontconfig."
http://www.debianadmin.com/install-k...in-ubuntu.html

It may be possible, may be not.

This is probably what I need. I have the same idea to install KDE 3.5's kde-core dependencies, but I don't know where to start.
Thanks! be right back when I'm done with it.

I seem to have some problems, I can't install kipi-plugins for digikam and gwenview.

I tried "sudo apt-get build-dep kipi-plugins" though. Is this alright? It would download some kde4 packages.

You already know this link
http://apt.pearsoncomputing.net/cdimages/
for the KDE 3.5.10 install / packages.

The 'Pearson' repository is described here
http://apt.pearsoncomputing.net/install.html

and the 'kipi-plugins' package is present :
http://ppa.launchpad.net/kde3-mainta...u/pool/main/k/
.....
.....
The command 'sudo apt-get build-dep kipi-plugins' will get you the
packages'-dev' needed to compile / build kipi-plugins for KDE 4.x .
.....
The only way to have a consistent kde-3.5.10 is to use the Pearson
KDE only, do not use any kde3 from the official ubuntu repo. AFAIK.
I haven't installed kde-3.5.10 on Jaunty yet, have "Pearson" on
Ubuntu Intrepid only, so far ..... and it works perfect.
