    after doing sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop, i tried sudo apt-get install kde4-core but it says ‘Couldn’t find package kde4-core’. i have already modified my sources.lst.

    updated – fixed it.

    Yes, I keep forgetting to include a sudo apt-get update after adding or changing the /etc/apt/sources.list file. It’s such a habit of automatically doing it after adding/changing a line that I forget to point it out.

    I’ve updated the post to include the line: sudo apt-get update before installing the kde4-core package.

    Thanks! ūüôā

    Certains paquets ne peuvent être installés. Ceci peut signifier
    que vous avez demand√ɬ© l’impossible, ou bien, si vous utilisez
    la distribution unstable, que certains paquets n’ont pas encore
    √ɬ©t√ɬ© cr√ɬ©√ɬ©s ou ne sont pas sortis d’Incoming.

    Puisque vous n’avez demand√ɬ© qu’une seule op√ɬ©ration, le paquet n’est
    probablement pas installable et vous devriez envoyer un rapport de bogue.
    L’information suivante devrait vous aider √É r√ɬ©soudre la situation√ā :

    Les paquets suivants contiennent des d√ɬ©pendances non satisfaites√ā :
    kde4-core: Dépend: kdebase-kde4 (>= 4:4.0.0) mais ne sera pas installé
    Dépend: kdebase-workspace (>= 4:4.0.0) mais ne sera pas installé
