    Welcome to the forums, bmora96!

    It's probably easiest if you use Synaptic to install your apps. Look for it in your admin menu. If it's not already installed, you can install it with apt. Go to a konsole and issue these commands:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    
    apt-get install synaptic
    Let us know how it goes.

    Adept Package Manager is pre-installed in Kubuntu and you should use that only. I prefer Synaptic over Adept because of its user friendly interface.

    Now i want to install some applications like MP3 player / Open office etc
    Koffice is pre-installed in Kubuntu and is based on Open Office only. For MP3, just open Amarok player and try to play any MP3 file. It will pop up a dialog box for codec installation. Install necessary codec through that.
    Or
    Execute this
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install kubuntu-restricted-extras
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
