Goto the following page http://opendoorsoftware.com/cgi/http.pl?p=kdecvs

Add the above links to you /etc/apt/sources.list then

What I do to make it quicker is cp sources.list sources.list.old

Then I remove all of the links from sources.list that do are used for the upgrade to kde 3.2

apt-get update

then Follow the directions for orth

After the upgrade then cp sources.list.old back to sources.list

apt-get update
