First off, what graphics card and what version of Ubuntu do you have? Also, why are you building a package?

Oneiric is no longer supported; you should consider upgrading to a supported version of Kubuntu, 12.04 or 13.04.

If you're seeing a desktop in Kubuntu, you already HAVE video drivers installed.

Linux is not Windows -- where you hunt around for drivers; in Linux, the correct drivers are found and installed as part of the initial setup.
