I've got kdevelop and kdevelop-data installed and it's working fine. I just
did an "apt-get install kdevelop", so I wasn't tempted by the kdevelop3

Actually - looking at it in more detail, kdevelop3 is just a dummy package.
It doesn't install any files itself, but does require kdevelop to be
installed. So, there's effectively no difference between installing kdevelop
and kdevelop3.

As for menu entries, I've got a whole KDevelop submenu under

It's a whole submenu because there are a number of different ways of
launching kdevelop, depending on how you want to use it - that could be why
entering "kdevelop" at the console isn't working for you.

Try "kdevelop --profile CandCppIDE" instead and see if that gets you

FWIW - I'm running Edgy Beta. Things could be different under Dapper.

Good luck!
