hey all, im having troubles installing kubuntu-desktop.
when i type in:
" sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop"
i get:
"Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Note, selecting kubuntu-desktop instead of kubuntu-kde4-desktop
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
kubuntu-desktop: Depends: kdebase-workspace-bin but it is not going to be installed
Depends: language-selector-qt but it is not going to be installed
Depends: okular but it is not going to be installed
Depends: software-properties-kde but it is not going to be installed
Recommends: apport-qt but it is not going to be installed
Recommends: gdebi-kde but it is not going to be installed
Recommends: guidance-power-manager but it is not going to be installed
Recommends: hplip-gui but it is not going to be installed
Recommends: install-package but it is not going to be installed
Recommends: jockey-kde but it is not going to be installed
Recommends: kde-printer-applet but it is not going to be installed
Recommends: kdebluetooth but it is not going to be installed
Recommends: libqca2-plugin-ossl but it is not going to be installed
Recommends: openoffice.org-kde but it is not going to be installed
Recommends: system-config-printer-kde but it is not going to be installed
Recommends: update-notifier-kde but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages

You don't have a whole lot of repos in your /etc/apt/sources.list. And besides, there are two from hardy which shouldn't be in there.

Make a backup of your original /etc/apt/sources.list in case you need it later.


sudo cp /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.bak
Now, edit /etc/apt/sources.list


gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
and remove everything in there. Then, paste in the new repos for intrepid.

Save it and close down gedit editing window. Now run


sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop
