KDE4 on Ascii

Please let me know, how to keep KDE v4 which I prefer over new version.

Please do not suggest how good KDE v5 is, I have seen it, and I do NOT like it.

Thank you for your help.

Re: KDE4 on Ascii

@golinux, Trinity is based on KDE3, not KDE4.

@alupoj i don't think there's a way to keep KDE4, other than using an old distro with KDE4 for as long you can get descent support (LTS), or pinning packages.. but these solutions are good for a short while, unless someone works on a KDE4 fork like Trinity for KDE3.

Re: KDE4 on Ascii

unless someone forks kde4 it is basically EOL: https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page= … eeBSD-2018

PS: I suppose you could keep a local copy of all KDE4 files/programs and keep it that way, however, there is no guarantee it will work moving forward when underlying compilers etc... change.
