I haven't kept the whole thread so I can't quote the OP from local
directories. However, in answer to part of their question, "is KDE 4.2
ever making it to 8.10":
<Quote from http://www.kubuntu.org/news/kde-4.2 >
The updated packages for Kubuntu 8.10 are located in the Kubuntu
Experimental Software Personal Package Archive (PPA) repository. To
update to KDE 4.2, please follow these instructions:
1. Remove the koffice-data-kde4 package if you have it installed. The
current koffice2 packages in the kubuntu-members-kde4 PPA are
incompatible with the KDE 4.2 packages since they try to install
icons to the same locations.
2. Follow the Kubuntu Repository Guide
<https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories/Kubuntu> to enable
/Recommended Updates/ and add the following to your 'Third-Party
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/kubuntu-experimental/ubuntu intrepid main
3. You can add the package signing key with this command:
gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 493B3065 && gpg
--export -a 493B3065 | sudo apt-key add -
4. Old Plasma packages are not compatible with KDE 4.2, you should
uninstall any plasmoids.
5. You can now update any existing KDE 4 installation to the most
recent version using the Adept Updater tool in your system tray.
6. Now log out and press Alt + E to restart X. When you log in you
will have KDE 4.2. Enjoy.
The answer is "Yes."
