I'm late to do the upgrade to KDE 4.9.5, but did do the apt-sources update at the beginning of January. About a month ago, update notifier stopped providing updates and just gives an error message, so I believe I need to do the KDE upgrade before individual packages will be kept up to date.
Rather than read through the many many pages of posts responding to Pinoc's sticky on the KDE upgrade to try to find this, can someone help me with:
1. A couple of times in the past I have lost my desktop configuration in a KDE upgrade. That has meant a lot of work to reconstruct it. What configuration file is it that I need to backup and then re-activate after the upgrade-- where is it located? Any tips about how to do that?
2. While I'm at it-- just checking so I don't bork my setup... Is there anything additional I need to do to install the upgrade to 4.9.5-- update notifier's error message may indicate the repos / sources are not right again (?)
I'm doing an online distance ed math course that requires Maple (on Windows), so I've been away from my first love (PCLOS) for the last month and a half and may have missed some things.
Hey, thanks so much!
