KPackage in SUSE Linux giving errors

Hi, sorry to bother again, I am trying to get packages from debian repo's using KPackage. It picks up the packages on the left side of the window, but when I select it for installation, I get the following error message:
< export DEBIAN_FRONTEND; apt-get install --yes 'baghira' ;echo RESULT=$?
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
The following NEW packages will be installed:
0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 removed and 111 not upgraded.
Need to get 727kB of archives.
After unpacking 1739kB of additional disk space will be used.
Get:1 SuSE/10.0-i386/suser-guru baghira [727kB]
Fetched 727kB in 3s (238kB/s)
Checking GPG signatures...
Unknown signature /var/cache/apt/archives/ (SHA1) DSA sha1 md5 (GPG) NOT OK (MISSING KEYS: GPG#58857177)
E: Error(s) while checking package signatures:
0 unsigned package(s)
1 package(s) with unknown signatures
0 package(s) with illegal/corrupted signatures
E: Handler silently failed

I was wondering what this meant and how I could rectify this. I am using SuSE 10. Much appreciated,

i don't think using deb packages on suse usually works.. mabye thats why it is balking.

or it is really the sig problem, where i suppose you need to uncheck the switch that is asking for verification of sigs... but i'm not sure where you do this in kpackage.

however make sure you reallly want to do what you are asking (forcing) the installer to do... because again, unless you are compiling or KNOW that the packages are compatible with suse.. you are going to trash all/part of your sys.

good luck.

I agree that it would be best to stick to using YaST and SUSE repositories. If you cannot find what you want using the existing repositories currently connected to your system, you might also consider trying other larger SUSE repositories like

Great thanks for the suggestions. I wanted to get Bibus running from the Debian packages. I guess I will fiddle later.
