We are pleased to announce that the 1st bugfix release of Plasma 5.15, 5.15.1, is now available in our backports PPA for Cosmic 18.10.
Released along with this new version of Plasma is an update to KDE Frameworks 5.54. (5.55 is currently in testing in Disco 19.04 and may follow in the next few weeks.)
Add the following repository to your software sources list:
or if it is already added, the updates should become available via your preferred update method.
The PPA can be added manually in the Konsole terminal with the command:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports
and packages then updated with
sudo apt update
sudo apt full-upgrade
Please note that more bugfix releases are scheduled by KDE for Plasma 5.15, so while we feel these backports will be beneficial to enthusiastic adopters, users wanting to use a Plasma release with more stabilisation/bugfixes ‘baked in’ may find it advisable to stay with Plasma 5.13.5 as included in the original 18.10 Cosmic release.
Should any issues occur, please provide feedback on our mailing list , IRC , and/or file a bug against our PPA packages .
