How to install The KDE 4.4 in Opensuse 10.2

You can set this repository to auto refresh (this is optional).
su -c ‘zypper mr -r openSUSE 11.2 KDE4 Factory Desktop’

This is highly suggested to get all the upgraded community based packages.

su -c ‘zypper ar http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Community/openSUSE_11.2_KDE4_Factory_Desktop/ openSUSE 11.2 KDE4 Factory Community’
Again this option step of making it automatically refresh:
su -c ‘zypper mr -r openSUSE 11.2 KDE4 Factory Community’
Upgrade to everything in this repository
su -c ‘zypper dup -r openSUSE 11.2 KDE4 Factory Community’
For openSUSE 11.0 and 11.1, just replace the 11.2 in all the above commands and you’ll be set.
The above steps could be done in the GUI using YaST and its Repositories Module and Software Installation Modules.
