    For the VLC problem I guess it's your repositories that you need to add vlc.
    I have this line in my /etc/apt/sources.list
    Code:
    deb http://nightlies.videolan.org/build/dapper-i386 /
    You can add it but remember it's unstable. Maybe someone else has the stable repo.
    For installing deb files use dpkg
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i <filename>
    I guess gdebi should work on Kubuntu too if you install gnomelib.
    And yeah many of these WYSIWYG editors don't work well on Konqueror and Opera. That's the price you pay for following the standards.

    VLC is available in the universe/multiverse repos. Check if they are enabled.

    ubuntu-use it with GNOME.the best.And use synaptic and check availability of packages.
    btw check ur srcs.list and try matching.
    Code:
    prakash@ubuntu:~$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list
    ###gpg --keyserver subkeys.pgp.net --recv KEY
    ###gpg --export --armor KEY | sudo apt-key add -

    Thanks,
    i managed to install opera using the dpkg command. Atleast i have a half decent browser now.

    Can i install gimp on kde? If can you suggest any other immage editing software. Any light one will do. need for very basic editing.

    @Shaunak, Copy the code given by @prakash in the file '/etc/X11/xorg.conf'

    $ sudo apt-get update

    Now wait for updates from the Net to finish. Now you can install VLC, MPlayer, GIMP etc.,

    Install FireFox:

    $ sudo apt-get install firefox

    In Kubuntu, 'Adept' is the Package Manager, you can use it to install, remove packages.

    $ gksu adept

    Ofcourse, you can install GNOME applications in KDE, that will work.

    Have you made sure that javascript is enabled? Open Konqueror window, go to Settings --> Configure Konqueror --> Java & JavaScript. Go to JavaScript tab and then check the box that says "Enable JavaScript globally".
