Why can't debconf initizlize frontend: KDE?


When i installed package, i was showing wrong message:
Code:
debconf: unable to initialize frontend: Kde
debconf: (Can't locate Qt.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /etc/perl /usr/local/lib/perl/5.8.4 /usr/local/share/perl/5.8.4 /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl/5.8 /usr/share/perl/5.8 /usr/local/lib/site_perl .) at /usr/share/perl5/Debconf/FrontEnd/Kde/Wizard.pm line 7.)
I wanna know what does this function work for, and how to solve this problem?

debconf is configured to use KDE as a frontend, and it seems like you are missing some libraries.

Try this:
aptitude -r install libqt-perl

Or you can reconfigure debconf to use Dialog as a frontend:
1. dpkg-reconfigure -s debconf
2. choose Dialog when asked for frontend

Let me know if this doesn't answer your question. =)

You can start from here:
Debian - Documentation (main page)
apt - HowTo
Debian Reference Documentations

These are not exhaustive. There is plenty of reference material on the web. Just do a search. You might want to start off with the links I pointed to.

Regards.
