The packages were updated in sid on May 10th & 11th so they should end up in Wheezy in the next couple days.

That worked for me.

 Re: KDE 4.8.3
fully upgraded 4.7.4 antix base,

mostly sid now ;-) upgrade worked fine and pretty quick :happy:.
Code:
[INSTALL, DEPENDENCIES] libupnp6:i386
[REMOVE, DEPENDENCIES] libept1:i386
[REMOVE, DEPENDENCIES] libupnp3:i386
[REMOVE, DEPENDENCIES] packagesearch:i386
[UPGRADE] apt:i386 0.8.15.10 -> 0.9.3
[UPGRADE] vlc:i386 1:2.0.1-0.6 -> 1:2.0.1-dmo1
[UPGRADE] vlc-nox:i386 1:2.0.1-0.6 -> 1:2.0.1-dmo1
thnkn ^ that was just sid and unrelated (lost packagesearch). i'll probably hold off for a while with the wheezy.. though.

thanks guys :thumbup: great timing for M12!!!

hmm, i do have an antix base laptop with kde and 512 mb.. we'll see (muhaha...) if i can find the time.

You might try installing the two sid packages, or wait until the libattr1 & libacl1 updates are in Wheezy to do the KDE 4.8.3 upgrade. The packages were updated in sid on May 10th & 11th so they should end up in Wheezy in the next couple days.

Where a screwdriver was required, I used a sledgehammer instead. Before I saw your post I upgraded Wheezy to Sid, then did the 4.8.3 upgrade, which went smoothly. 117 upgraded, 9 newly installed, 2 removed.

All I wanted really was to see what it looked like.

It looks the same.

4.7.4

Yes, I know there are improvements, but hard to see a difference visually and functionally. Probably a lot of bug fixes.

EDIT: I could not find a 4.8.0 changelog. but here is a 4.8.1 changelog.

http://www.kde.org/announcements/change ... o4_8_1.php

It seems as if it might be a bit snappier, always a good thing on this old machine.

According to the KDE team, updating should be "safe and pleasant" due to the bugfixes-only nature of the release

I like some of the changes they've made to the Task Manager widget and the new "Icon-Only Task Manager" widget. They added a "Show A Launcher When Not Running" checkbox.

I've removed the icon/launchers I had on the panel for my most used apps (firefox, dolphin, systemsettings, etc.) and I'm now using that task manager option to launch those apps.

@kmathern

That feature needs a bit getting used to. I am used to the icon denoting a running app. Hovering will let you know if it is running, however.

I find the Quicklaunch widget to usefully group favorite apps in the taskbar. It does not take alot of room.
