Hello Harry,

I founded this link available for Kubuntu :

On Debian Squeeze :
# add-apt-repository ppa:kubuntu-ppa/backports -y
gpg --ignore-time-conflict --no-options --no-default-keyring --secret-keyring /etc/apt/secring.gpg --trustdb-name /etc/apt/trustdb.gpg --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --primary-keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --keyserver --recv-keys

Debian seems not accepted to work with a backport Ubuntu ...

Bye, see you.
