which KDE4 version?


Is there a terminal command that prints which KDE version a computer runs? For example I would like to see the command responding as "kde4.1.3" or something along those lines.

"kded4 -v" does it for me.

"kdesktop -v" also gives a similar output, but I'm still running kde3, so it only shows the running 3.59. I don't know if it will show kde4 output, or whether there's a different command for it (there's a separate kded for kde3).

Edit: It looks like every kde application shows this. I only have a couple of kde4 programs installed (ktorrent has moved completely to kde4, for example), so I get different outputs depending on which version the application is based on.

Thanks for the prompt solutions. By the way, "kdesktop -v" does not seem to work on my KDE4, but I can even do something like "dolphin -v" and get the result. Thanks!
