KDE 3 via apt-get


I'm new to debian -- and to linux.
Right now I'm using KDE2, which is obviously out of date.
Someone told me to enter
deb hatetepe:// download.kde.org/ stable/ 3.1.3/ Debian stable main
(I'm not allowed to post URLs)
in my /etc/apt/sources.list .
I did so and entered apt-get upgrade, the reply was that a lot of packages have been "kept back", ark, karm, kate, kcalc, kcharselect, kcoloredit, kcron, kdebase and so on. Why is that so/What can be done to solve the problem? apt-get install kde gives back "kde is newest version already".

Thanks a lot,

Here's what I did and it worked very smoothly;
apt-get update && apt-get install arts kdelibs kdebase kdegraphics kdeadmin

Having done this I did apt-get install kdemultimedia

I used the following in my sources.list

deb http://download.kde.org/stable/3.1.3/Debian stable main

It's working well and am very impressed with it.

this gives me back a lot of stuff like

kdeadmin: Depends: kcmlinuz (>= 4:3.1.3-0woody1) but it is not going to be installed

and about 40 others. Do I have to download&Install all that or is it something different?

Thanks a lot,

You would have to satisfy any dependencies. Normally you would answer y to this question. You may also have install qt3

I am having the same problem. I am trying to install the qt3 packages but am having a heck of a time trying to find a deb site or the proper package names.
Any ideas?

As far as I know there isn't a deb package of qt3. You have to download the tarball and install. Follow the instructions carefully.

I have found that if you add the dependencies into the apt-get install that it will install with no problem. For instance, if you were to run 'apt-get install kdebase arts kdelibs kdegraphics kdeadmin' and get get the 'depends: libartsc0' , you should append that into the command. I.E. 'apt-get install kdebase arts kdelibs kdegraphics kdeadmin libartsc0 '. Continue doing that for every dependency that you get. It is also important that your sources.list contains proper sources that contain these packages. Mine certainly isn't very extensive, but it seemed to do the trick.

sources.list:
deb http://security.debian.org/ stable/updates main contrib
deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main contrib
deb http://ftp.debian.org/ unstable main
deb http://download.kde.org/stable/3.1.3/Debian stable main

I had to download the tarball for qt3 and I also came accross ldsensors-1debian1 (sp.) which couldn't be downloaded (either 3rd party or on another deb source), but I had no problem finding it on the net. Hope this helps.
