As far I know we can install ny app in ny desktop environment. Such as KDE apps in GNOME env and vice versa.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

KDE apps run perfectly in Ubuntu(Gnome).
Just go ahead and install them.

Only thing is you will end up downloading a lot of stuff as the KDE library dependencies would be higher.

My guess would be yes assuming that you would be using the same architecture for both (32 or 64 bit etc) . I believe you could do this by just adding the cd/dvd to the source packages list.


Always confused
can I install them from kubuntu CD??

infact, I installed the KDE desktop environment in Ubuntu from Kubuntu CD and also the reverse. Just search in the Net or "bing" your query to get the solution.
