Move [testing] below [extra] and [core] in pacman.conf. Do the same for
[community-testing] and use pacman -S testing/whatever to install stuff.

Just remember that you can run into problems if you do that, since this
is somewhat similar to incomplete updates and pacman won't automatically
pull newer dependencies from [testing].
