RIP ktown, you will be reborn as official packages.

Thanks to Eric for maintaining it all this time. Qt-5 is absolutely essential and I’m glad it’s officially part of the distro.

Nah, you could be sure that this KTown will be the place where Mr. Hameleers will fight with Plasma6, when the time will come....

ktown has always been where Eric has provided newer (or fuller) versions of KDE. I highly doubt it will go away.

It is also likely where newer versions will exist than what's released for the stable version of Slackware (while newer versions are able to be built on that stable version, which is why 14.2's ktown hasn't been updated in quite some time).

That makes sense. Thanks!

Iím any case Iím just happy KDE5 is about to become official.

And it won't be very long, most likely. PLasma 5.18 that was released last week is expected to be the last versions in the 5.x series, and 6 will be released once 5.18.x is done being released. However, shouldn't be NEARLY as disruptive as 4 -> 5.

Not a fan of KDE/Qt, but great news nonetheless! I appreciate how resource-lean Plasma is these days, even if I don't use it other than to check out the progress occasionally.

How do you configure it though? I ran qtconfig and the version states 4.8.7 , but the package is indeed qt5 - so what gives?
