Sorry for the late reply. I have reverted to xpdf, the 
granddaddy of Kpdf.  I am using xpdf with slack 12.2. I 
liked the previous Kpdf but the more recent version has 
lost the automatic refresh feature with I need for my work. 
Don't know if Kubuntu will download xpdf. Will try it out. 

If Debian/Kubuntu lacks Kpdf altogether I may continue to 
leave that partition dormant except when I need to use a 
more recent Gimp or Inkscape.
