I understand your question perfectly well. 'kPDF' was one of my
favourites when using Kubuntu 7.10. But with 'Jaunty', KPDF has not
'gone'. It has simply another name: "Okular" - a package with the same
features and some extra ones.  Open simply a PDF file with 'Okular'
and you will understand what I mean.

Respectfully yours,
