You can try http://www.backports.org looks like they have version 3.5.7 built for stable which is the latest, otherwise you would need to dist-upgrade to testing or unstable to get the latest.

Code:
## Etch backports
deb http://www.backports.org/debian etch-backports main contrib non-free

Actually 3.5.7 is in unstable too. You'll have to go to experimental to get 3.92.0.

In testing/unstable actually I run it, you both overlook the fact that DiscipleDOC is running a stable system which is why I pointed out the backports site so he can get software built for it. Now if it is the 3.92.0 (AKA KDE 4.0 beta 1) he is looking to install well there is not a hope in hell that will install on a stable system...

My point was that "version 3.5.7 -- otherwise you would need to dist-upgrade to testing or unstable to get the latest" was incorrect. Switching to testing or unstable would not help. To get KDE newer than 3.5.7 you would have to get it from experimental.

No...I want a stable version of KDE. I do not want to test out any beta software.

You want the backports.org site I mentioned then... put the line I posted in your sources.list then update with either apt-get or aptitude depending on which you use then simulate an upgrade (apt-get -s upgrade not sure for aptitude don't use it) if everything looks like it is going to upgrade nicely then remove the simulation (-s for apt-get) and let it do it. If you have problems then post the output of the commands here so we can see it.

Roger that. I will give this a go when I get home.

Another question: Is there a way to bind my window keys to do certain tasks? And is there a way to control the volume with my mm keyboard? I was able to do this in kubuntu, but I can not do this in debian. I'm pretty sure that I need ceratin apps installed.....

Ok...I got that working last night. I have KDE 3.5.7 installed. Everything is working the way it should (still got some tweaking to do), and I'm learning a heck of a lot more than I did my first go at working with linux.

I also want to retract my previous statement about not liking this more than kubuntu...because it's starting to grow on me.

Anyway, my next project is to get compiz working, and then maybe look at getting my multimedia keyboard to work with debian.


I am really digging debian right now.
