Kubuntu distributes KDE 4 using PPA

Seen some of the bling and functionality in KDE 4 and thought, “I want some of that”?

If you’re running Kubuntu or Ubuntu, no problem! Thanks to Launchpad’s Personal Package Archives, upgrading is as simple as adding a new repository.

Jonathan Riddell – chief Kubuntoid – sent word on why they’re using a PPA:

“It’s the fastest and most flexible way to make our KDE 4.0 packages available. For example: it’s very easy to bring in new contributors since we can just add them to the necessary team. The other great thing is that we can get packages out there very quickly because they get published as soon as they are compiled.”

Take a look at Kubuntu’s KDE 4 page to get KDE 4 on your desktop.
