From the Kubuntu 5.10 Release Notes (available at kubuntu.org or by pressing
F1 (KDE Help Center) and clicking on Kubuntu Docs):
Here's what's new with Kubuntu 5.10
On the Desktop
Adept and Adept-Updater
Adept is a new package manager for KDE. With advanced search facilities using
debtags, hunting for packages is now easier than ever.
To help keep your system current, adept-updater checks to see which packages
have changed and makes it easy to download and install the latest fixes.
There are various other changes as well. Even though it is hard to determine
your exact issue(s), it appears that you have multimedia problems (no doubt
you lost your non-free software from your Hoary setup when you did a clean
install). See this as it may help: wiki.ubuntu.com/RestrictedFormats
If you have an ubuntu install you can also check the new Ubuntu Starter Guide
which addresses some of the restricted formats issues as well as many others.
Good luck and hang in there; it is all good.
