Assuming you're using unstable or testing, you don't need anything extra
in your sources.list.  There just is no package called "kde".

If you want to get a crapload of kde stuff, then:

apt-get install task-kde

Otherwise, if you want to be more selective, "apt-get install kdebase"
should install the core KDE package with its dependencies, and from
there you can use "apt-cache search <whatever>" to search for the
package names of other progs to install.

Oh, BTW, if you plan on using Konqueror and want strong encryption, I
recommend installing the kdelibs3-crypto and kdebase-crypto packages too.
