We want you … Try KDE 4 …

If you ever wanted to check out what KDE 4 is all about. Then you have to try the following.

Get the VMWare Server and create a new VM with 512 MB of Ram and approx. 10 Gb of HDD space.

You also need to get the Ubuntu JeOS (JeOS = Just enough Operating System and was designed to build VM Ware appliances) image from:


Insert the iso Image into your fresh VM and go through the standard JeOS setup which is fairly simple.

After one reboot you should be able to login in and add the following line into “/etc/apt/sources.list”

  • /deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/project-neon/ubuntu hardy main/

Now run

  • apt-get update
  • apt-get install kde-nightly autoconf automake binutils make cpp gcc linux-headers-$(uname -r) xorg xserver-xorg-input-vmmouse kdm-kde4 kde-nightly-kdegraphics kde-nightly-kdepimlibs kde-nightly-kdenetwork kde-nightly-kdemultimedia amarok-nightly

That’s all…. type “reboot” and wait for the login dialog…. Now you only have to choose neonkde as session and enter your username and password.
