Re: [trinity-users] Upgrading from KDE4

It's quite painless (compared to the constant itching KDE4 gave me):
- remove all KDE4 related packages
- remove nepomuk, plasma and akonadi, if they still are present (which was the 
case wen I did the transition)
- install desktop-base-trinity kde-trinity as mentioned in the installation 
- again remove all KDE4 related packages, as some are pulled in again. Check 
for possible replacements frome trinity if needed.
