    12 April update: KDE Plasma 5.9 is STILL not available in the “Kubuntu Backports” and “Kubuntu Backports Landing: PPAs for Ubuntu 16.04 or 16.10. Plasma 5.8.5 is still the latest you can install on those Ubuntu versions.

    The “Kubuntu Backports Staging” PPA has v5.9.4 but only for Zesty (17.04). (and the official Kubuntu Zesty repository has a never version available anyway).

    Can plasma 5.9 be installed on linux mint 17.3 and should I if I can?

  3. Adam Plocher says:

    Totally misleading article.

    “KDE Plasma 5.9 is not yet packaged in repositories of the main stream Linux distributions, therefore, we will show you how to install or upgrade to KDE Plasma 5.8.5.”

    … “I hope that everything has worked fine, you can now enjoy KDE Plasma 5.8.5 on your desktop.”

    … uhh, thanks, I guess?
