Kpat is part of KDE which is not the standard for Ubuntu. Are you actually using Kubuntu which has KDE as the base desktop environment? The link below shows kpat as being available through the software center for Ubuntu although it only shows it through version 13.10, no longer supported. I don't know if it is available on later releases of Ubuntu. Try checking the software center to first remove it then reinstall if you can. Not sure how this will work if you are using Unity.
