    The package is called kubuntu-kde4-desktop:
    sudo apt-get install kubuntu-kde4-desktop

    However, that installs KDE 4.0.5. If you want KDE 4.1 beta 1 (a development version that has more features and maybe more bugs), check this:
    http://kubuntu.org/announcements/kde-4.1beta1.php
    and this for more information: http://blog.nixternal.com/2008.06.05...a-1-completed/

    I think something went wrong too. We need to know something about your setup. Are you using Ubuntu with KDE 3.5.x now? Also, can you please post the contents of your /etc/apt/sources.list file?

    Okay, so if you just installed Kubuntu (or any Ubuntu), you most likely have not updated your package listing yet. Do this before running the installation command:

    sudo apt-get update

    Then when you're done, try installing KDE 4:

    sudo apt-get install kubuntu-kde4-desktop

    /etc/apt/sources.list is the path to the file. You can open it in kate by running:

    kdesu kate /etc/apt/sources.list

    But see if the installation works before messing with your sources.list file.

    Oh, it's no wonder you couldn't find it; you're still running Gutsy.

    If you don't mind reinstalling, I would suggest installing the latest and greatest Hardy Heron, which has a KDE 4 version: http://www.kubuntu.org/download.php

    If you want to stick with Gutsy, do this: http://kubuntu.org/announcements/kde-4.0.php
    You might want to read the error message and run dpkg --configure -a to fix your system. If you continue to get the message regarding /var/lib/dpkg/lock even if you don't have any apt/dpkg processes running, you can delete that file and try again.
