how to get an old version of kpat working with kde in Sarge?


Me and my wife miss the "Kings" patience that was included in the kpat
package until recently. That particular patience was disabeld because
the implementation of it had a bug and no one seemed to care enough
about the "kings" patience to fix the bug.


We would like to have the kings patience even if buggy. My first try
to get it was to simply install an older version of kpat with

# dpkg -i kpat[version_number_that_I_no_longer_remember_3.2_something].deb

That worked until I installed a new version of kde.

What are my options to get kpat with "kings"?

-compile an older version of kpat (3.2) to work with kde 3.3?

-get the source for kpat 3.3, somehow enable "kings" and recompile?

Are there other options?

I have no knowledge in c++, but I suppose I could hand-reverse the
patch to kpat that disabled "kings".

If kpat 3.2 could be make to work with kde 3.3 without changing the
source, I would prefer that, but is it possible?

Thanks in advance for any recommendations, hints, tips or other
helpful advice.

Note that I use Debian version 3.1
