#kde #neon is not a fullblown distribution by now. It is based on a minimal installation of ubuntu 16.04 LTS and delivers nothing but a plain ubuntu base with an up2date plasmashell on it. no applications and other usefull additions whatsoever!!
you will have to install everything by hand – starting with “konsole” and “gtk3-breeze-engines” or things like “kate” and other stuff.
Therefore it’s probably a good idea to just use plain #kubuntu and add the neon package archive.
this is how you do it:
get the key for the package archive..
wget -q -O - http://archive.neon.kde.org/public.key | sudo apt-key add -
add the following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://archive.neon.kde.org/release xenial main
and update/upgrade your system
sudo apt updatesudo apt full-upgrade
or (instead of the last line)
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade -o dpkg::options::="--force-overwrite"
if you break something on your first upgrade attempt don’t worry.. just “sudo apt-get -f install” or “sudo dpkg –configure -a ” and run the upgrade again
