KDE logoKDE 3.5 has been released on November 29, 2005. I bet that some people are trying to get their hands on the new desktop environment.

I’ve found a nice tutorial that helps Ubuntu Breezy 5.10 user install KDE 3.5 painlessly

OK, here it goes :

Login as root and run the following commands from the console

apt-key add kubuntu-packages-jriddell-key.gpg

Add the following lines to /etc/apt/sources.list

# Ubuntu 5.10 KDE 3.5 Repository
deb breezy main

Run the following commands

apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade

I’ve copied this guide directly from :

Connecting TMNet Streamyx Broadband while using Ubuntu

I write this because people have been sending me questions regarding how to connect streamyx broadband service on Ubuntu Linux. IMHO, this thing happened for two reasons

  1. Ubuntu has been shipping GNU/Linux for free
  2. Ubuntu doesn’t provide obvious way to connect to broadband

OK now, just cross your finger, open a gnome-terminal, and type :
$ sudo pppoeconf

and follow the step-by-step screenshot! Heh, i’m not being lazy to type the rest of the guide, I just don’t know how to write a proper one!
