Go to Synaptic Package Manager, and see if anything pops up.
If you have a dependency problem it usualy fixes it for you.

In gnome, gdebi does that as well. I don't know if there is an equivalent to that in kubuntu, but have a look.

Also, in gnome, if you double click the .deb file, gdebi opens and tries to install, telling you if dependencies are missing, and what they are.
