            Bug ID: 305558
          Severity: normal
               URL: http://edu.kde.org/applications/mathematics/kalgebra/
           Version: unspecified
          Priority: NOR
          Assignee: kde-www at kde.org
           Summary: No instructions on how to install kalgebra, or other
                    edu apps
    Classification: Unclassified
                OS: Linux
          Reporter: tdfischer at fedoraproject.org
          Hardware: Other
            Status: NEW
         Component: general
           Product: www.kde.org

The new KDE Edu website is absolutely fantastic, but it lacks any direction on
how to install a piece of software. The link on KAlgebra's page points to
kde-apps.org, which contains a broken download link.

Some very lengthy and heated discussion in IRC led us to realize that there is
no way for a user who is totally new to Linux to figure out how to install
kalgebra without already having knowledge of their distro's package manger.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Google for 'kalgebra'
2. Try to install it, without opening the package manager yourself
Actual Results:  

Expected Results:  
Something somewhere tells the user to check their package manger, or a link
automatically opens up KAlgebra in the package manager.

User had been using Fedora for approximately 3 weeks, and was looking to
install KAlgebra to help out with kde-edu.
