Kde 3.5.10 in Ubuntu 10.10


Hey, i'm playing around and learning and fiddling with linux and fbsd. I'd like to try the outdated kde 3.5.10 since it's apparently very different to the current kde which i'm quite fond of, but i don't know how. I've googled it, but i just can't find how to install Kde 3.X on this version of Ubuntu.

jens is correct. If you want KDE 3.5.x in any fairly new Ubuntu, then Trinity is the way to go. They have a very easy install procedure via the package manager and it won't mess up your system. I've done it before and it went pretty well.

You can either use a text editor like vim,nano etc,or I believe you can add repositories via the Synaptic package manager gui.

Step 1. Copy those lines from your browser.
Step 2. Open the terminal and type sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
Step 3. Paste and save.
Step 4. Profit!
