by doing apt-cache search desktop i found a package "kdesktop"; tried
intalling it, it said it was already installed; i removed it and tried
intalling it... and
"Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Package kubuntu-desktop is not available, but is referred to by another
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package kubuntu-desktop has no installation candidate"

.... -.-'

now what little desktop there still was is lost..

I'm resigned to reinstalling kubuntu; Is there a way to do it without having
the target partition formated?

Sorry Donn, thanks alot for the effort anyway :s
