Kubuntu Install Issues

Successfully installed Kubuntu 5.10 Breezy and found the following useful:

Automatix
is good (installs propriety/software patent restricted stuff which cannot be included with Kubuntu/Ubuntu). The following links are useful:
– I tried the instructions at the following address but got dependency issues:

– To solve the dependency issues I had to:
Get an updated sources.list for apt for kubuntu from:
http://www.ubuntulinux.nl/source-o-matic

To install Automatix I needed Zentity so did:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install zenity
wget http://beerorkid.com/automatix/automatix_5.7-3_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i automatix_5.7-3_i386.deb

Important – I could not seem to do this before I did:
sudo apt-get -f install

Eventually Zenity and Automatix installed (libgnomecanvas etc dependencies)
I entered the following in the terminal: Automatix
This ran the program and I could tick all the boxes of apps I needed.
The install took a long time (1-2 hours)
