Since releasing Calligra 2.4, beta 3 we’ve received three updates from packagers!
First came Andreas Huettel for Gentoo. He says:
Gentoo users rejoice!
Then Jonathan Riddel told me that Paolo Dias has packaged the latest beta for *buntu — *buntu users now have a choice between project Neon (follows git master) and the official releases of the Calligra and Krita teams. This is the ppa:
It’s experimental of course, but very, very welcome!
Finally, for Debian users there’s great news: the qt-kde debian project has packages available as well now, thanks to Adrien. Right now it’s beta2, but when Adrien returns from his well-earned vacation, he will update it to beta 3. Just follow these instructions:
According to the webpage (http://qt-kde.debian.net/), You have to
add the following to your /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb http://qt-kde.debian.net/debian experimental-snapshots main deb-src http://qt-kde.debian.net/debian experimental-snapshots main
In order to get repository key, install the pkg-kde-archive-keyring
aptitude install pkg-kde-archive-keyring
then you can install calligra with :
apt-get install calligra
And if you are interested in Krita, join us next Saturday on #krita on freenode for the bug day! Help us find bugs so we can fix them in time for the next release!
