KDE Plasma 5 Has Received Bug-Fixes. How To Install KDE Plasma 5 On Kubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Kubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn and Linux Mint 17 Qiana KDE

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, KDE Plasma 5 has been released a while ago, being created in Qt5 and KDE Frameworks 5.

KDE Plasma 5 comes with many important apps ported in Qt5, the new Kicker Menu, a new default theme called Breeze and new wallpapers, new monochrome icons, support for hardware acceleration via OpenGL and OpenGL ES, an updated KDM (KDE display manager) and an enhanced lockscreen, among other changes implemented.

Recently, KDE Plasma 5.0.2 has been released, coming with a new set of bug-fixes:

“This release, versioned plasma-5.0.2, adds a month’s worth of new translations and fixes from KDE’s contributors. The bugfixes are typically small but important such as fixing text which couldn’t be translated, using the correct icons and fixing overlapping files with KDELibs 4 software. It also adds a month’s hard work of translations to make support in other languages even more complete,”

Note: KDE Plasma 5 is not stable yet for daily usage, so if still want to test it, you should install KDE Plasma 5 under a virtual environment like Virtualbox or VMWare.
