K3b Source Code

See the Compiling K3b from source step-by-step guide for help with installing K3b.

K3b 2.0.2 (KDE4)

K3b 1.0.5 (KDE 3.2)

K3b 0.11.24 (KDE 3.1)

K3b 0.8.1 (KDE 3.0) Please understand that I cannot give support for K3b 0.8 since it's way too old and unmaintained anyway. If possible update your whole KDE. It's worth it anyway ;)

Please understand that I don't provide any support for the binary packages. If you have problems please contact the packager or install K3b from source.
