Hi Antony,

This has been reported at

Personally I resolved this using :

dpkg -i --force-overwrite /var/cache/apt/archives/kdelibs-data_4%

KDE 3.4 has been working fine ever since.

But check the above link for discussion on the best approach.

This has also been reported as an upstream debian bug.  See
http://lists.debian.org/debian-qt-kde/2004/12/msg00201.html for details
