Please don't post in HTML.  Plain text is good. =:^)  (You posted in 
both.)


That "kdelids" is almost certainly a typo for kdelibs, thus explaining 
why you can't find it! =:^(  If it wasn't your typo and the deb for it is 
actually requiring "kdelids", then the package maintainer or whoever 
threw together that deb must have typoed.

While I've never run a debian-based distro[1], most package management 
systems have a way to "fake" a requirement, normally for the case of you 
building it manually instead of installing a package, but usable in this 
case to fake kdelids, since it's almost certainly kdelibs, which will be 
installed if you're running anything kde-related at all.

The other alternative would be to rebuild the deb with the correct 
requirements, and/or ask whoever built it to do so, filing a bug or 
whatever, as necessary.

Of course if you're not running anything kde-based, kdelibs won't 
normally be pulled in, but you should be able to install it, either 
directly or by installing something else kde-based that pulls it in.

[1] I run the ebuild-script-based gentoo now and for over a decade, but 
ran the rpm-based mandrake back when I first switched to freedomware 
instead of accepting the authorization protocol eXPrivacy would have 
required, from late 2001 to early 2004.  So even my rpm experience is now 
a decade outdated, tho the general functionality is of course still 
similar.
