Ha - last week I sent a lis of packages I had to install to be able to
get & compile the latest SVN for Kubuntu Feisty and mailed it to
Jesper to add to KPA site, so

The packages are

autoconf automake xorg-dev subversion libexif-dev libexiv2-0.12
libexiv2-dev sqlite3 kipi-plugins libkipi-dev build-essential
qt3-dev-tools kdebase-dev libarts1-xine sqlite libqt3-mt-sqlite

Check that you have those installed. Those and
ubuntu-restricted-extras should enable all features of KPA.
