I've followed this hint to get the local KDE version out of kded4 --version and it shows

Qt: 4.8.7
KDE Development Platform: 4.14.16
KDE Daemon: 4.14.16

But the Info-Center (as suggested here) do show different versions - and probably the right ones.


How can that happen? My first and maybe naive guess is, that kded4 shows actually its own version:

kdelibs-bin amd64 4:4.14.16-0ubuntu3.1 [167 kB]
  • Is this happening after updating? If yes, is it happening even after restart? – Mostafa Ahangarha Mar 14 '17 at 18:38
  • @jarleih was right, the problem is the probably old package kdelibs-bin. It also does not come with KDE 5. – BairDev Mar 15 '17 at 8:16

KDE Neon is based on KDE 5; what Info-Center is showing are the version numbers for KDE 5. Along the way you have installed a program depending on KDE 4 that has of course different version numbers for qt,...

  • That is correct. The program in question is the kdelibs-bin package, which is not installed with KDE Neon/5. – BairDev Mar 15 '17 at 8:15
