Having installed Debian/GNU wheezy onto my desktop, I am now looking
some KDE applications.

The only package manager provided on wheezy is aptitude which is not
world's easiest program to use.

Is there a KDE package manager available?

What happened with our beloved Synaptic? :-)
It works, but it is in /usr/sbin so it needs root permissions.

I've found a KDE package called packagesearch which will install
and probably remove (but I have not tried that yet) packages.
The search facility is excellent.

Thank you for your reply.

Of course Synaptic requires root permission. If you're not root, you should not be allowed to install packages! Aren't you the owner of the
Debian installation?  If so, you surely have a root password.
