I have been using Ivan's "Potato" version of KDE 2.1.2 since Progeny
Newton came out without problems. Just install the Progeny version of
KDE (2.0 I think), then go to http://kde.debian.net/ and add the
appropriate lines from there to your /etc/apt/sources.list file. Do an
"apt-get update", then an "apt-get upgrade" and it will be upgraded to
the 2.1.2 version!!
