I notice you've tagged this post as "dpkg", which I guess means you're trying to use that to install the packages. You can make your life a whole lot easier by using apt-get.

Basically, to install a package, you run "apt-get install packagename", and this will automatically install all of the required libraries and things for you. Do you already have any kind of CD / DVD? This should already have everything you need on it.

If you're still getting problems then post again mentioning which version of Debian (as the title mentions it, I assume that's what you're using ) you've got, and what error messages you're getting.

Hope this helps!

Then you need to see if Kubuntu has what Debian would call distribution cd/dvd disks available. These unlike an install cd/dvd have the .deb packages for the entire software collection that has been built for the release. Once you have these disks you use apt-cdrom to add them to your sources.list then you can use apt/aptitude to install software from the disks on to your system.

I may be wrong, but I think one of the disks here would be what you want.

You can download 6.10 disks here, or alternatively this page provides information on buying a disk set.

Hmm, in that case I'm not sure what you need. Maybe someone more knowledgable about Kubuntu can help you out.

Sorry I haven't been of more help.

Kubuntu is Ubuntu with KDE as default instead of Gnome as default so I would think a DVD of the Ubuntu repository would work fine for you..

http://wiki.ubuntu-id.org/DistribusiDvdReposUbuntu

http://blog.mypapit.net/2006/08/get-...es-on-dvd.html

It's not like a repository of the same version is going to have updates for KDE anyway..
