Hi Everyone, can anyone tell me the command to reinstall my desktop in kubuntu 8.10 using kde 4.2 I tried sudo apt-get update wirh kubuntu-desktop but It didnt work I am pretty sure that the desktop name is not correct for kde 4.2 anyway I accidently deleted the desktop and i need to reinstall. Thanks to everyone in advance.

If you have the kubuntu-experimental repository enabled then "sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop" should install kde4.2 (plus all the other stuff kubuntu has by default). Otherwise the same command will install kde4.1 which is the version of kde that comes with 8.10.
