Upgrade okular in debian wheezy

I have okular version 0.14.3 with KDE 4.8.4. I use debian wheezy and I dont know how I can upgrade to 0.15 version of okular. Any suggestions. Also, I use KDE only to use Kile and Okular.

Generally speaking (there are many exceptions), Debian users get newer software by upgrading their release. So in your case, you could upgrade from Wheezy (KDE 4.8) to Jessie (KDE 4.11). Be aware that Wheezy's current status is Stable, while Jessie is considered Testing, so proceed with caution (especially if this is a mission-critical production machine).

Ihave okular on squeeze and 7, not sure which version of okular (it beats doc. viewer), but why do you want 0.15?
Some problems seem to come from the document itself not the reader/exporter.

The okular from jessie requires the kde-runtime >> 4:4.10, which means you need ALL of KDE from jessie, which means you need most of the base libs from jessie ... which (as stated by snowpine) means you need to "upgrade" to testing if you want it.


debian, kde, update, wheezy
