    KDE Plasma 5.27.7 availabe in Kubuntu Backports

    Above mentioned updates for our preferred desktop environment are availabe for Kubuntu 23.04 in the Kubuntu Backports PPA.

    Thank you very much for your work!​

    Link to the complete changelog for KDE Plasma 5.27.7 :

    You can find the installation instructions on the Kubuntu Backports PPA website, but here they are again:

    Open the Konsole terminal emulator and enter
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt full-upgrade

    After this any future updates that the Kubuntu Backports PPA provide for your Kubuntu version will be automatically installed when you update your system.

    As always I strongly recommend that you have prepared some way to revert your system to a previous state if something goes wrong, e.g.:

    One can install ppa-purge before and use it to get rid of the Kubuntu Backports' packages again.
    Or use a Timeshift system backup.
    Or use LVM/ext4 with snapshots or btrfs with snapshots as your file system.
    Or use a Clonezilla volume backup.
    Or …​​​​

    Schwarzer, thanks for the update. Hey isn't Schwarzer Kater a liqueur? Your parents named you after a bottle of booze?
