Please don't post in HTML. Plain text is good. =:^) (You posted in
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, 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.
 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a decade outdated, tho the general functionality is of course still
