How to check KDE versions

Dear all,

I am on 16.04 with backports ppa enabled. I hade a huge chunk uf kde5
updates earlier.

So I wanted to check what version(s) I am now on. In the earlier version
you would just go "help" and "about" but that seems gone.

Anyone knows how to?

Kind regards,
Sinclair

I don't know how Help -> About could be gone.

If you know the package name, you could do "apt-show-versions <packagename>".
Use "apt-cache search --names-only <txt>" to search for package names.
